Virtual Online Future Vet Kids Camp - Winter 2022

Virtual Online Future Vet Kids Camp set to go viral during the winter school holidays! 

Australia’s favourite veterinary-inspired school holiday program Future Vet Kids Camp is set to go viral with its Virtual Online Vet Camp during the winter school holidays, giving kids in Australia and around the world a pawsome animal experience!

Having started in Sydney about 12 years ago, the 5-day program is designed and run by veterinarians and led by vet twin sisters Drs Audrey and Alison Shen from the Bondi Vet TV show and Aussie Mobile Vet.

The program caters to kids aged 9 to 16 years and encourages responsible pet ownership, the profession of veterinary medicine and a love and appreciation of all animals and their habitats.

Virtual Online Vet Camp (26 June – 8 July) will run concurrently to the face-to-face camp in Brisbane QLD (27 June – 1 July and 4 – 8 July 2022) with the ability for aspiring young vets to join the classroom virtually from anywhere around the world, and participate with questions in real time.

“The course walks the campers through virtual tours of veterinary hospitals, specialist centres, zoos and reptile parks, as well as interviews with some of the most exciting animal professionals who have dedicated their career to animals,” said Dr Audrey.

Dr Alison said the camp showcases all the opportunities available as vets and other wonderful professions in the animal industry.
“Campers will learn about genetic diseases, pet nutrition, dog behaviour and enrichment, exotic animals, surgery, animal rescue, wildlife conservation and much more!” she said.
The twin vets can’t wait to introduce campers to their outstanding Aussie presenters from surgical vets to wildlife and exotic vets, animal rescue groups, veterinary specialists, snake catchers, mobile vets and more!

Scholarships are available!

Joining from South Africa

Thirteen-year-old ‘vet wanna be’ Aydin van Staden didn’t let the eight hours time difference in South Africa stop her from joining Future Vet Kids Camp’s Virtual Online Vet Camp in January.

“My entire sleep schedule changed during the camp as I went to bed earlier and woke up earlier, but I enjoyed the experience. I learned so much and still have a full book of notes,” she said.

“I particularly enjoyed baking dog biscuits and learning about the breeds and behaviours. In fact, I used the knowledge I gained from camp to help some of my friends decide which dogs would better suit them.
I also taught my friends the importance of neutering their animals and what it involves in caring for a dog with certain diseases, including the growing vet bills over time.”
Joining from New Zealand

Lucia Stewart, 11, was so impressed with the Virtual Online Vet Camp she attended from her home in New Zealand during Covid lockdown in 2020 that she booked a spot at the upcoming face-to-face camp in Brisbane!

She also looks forward to meeting a friend she made in the Virtual Online Vet Camp, who also shares a love for birds and other animals.
“The online program was a great opportunity for myself and other children who couldn’t get to a camp due to lockdowns. It was great fun and gave me something I could do that I was interested in,” she said.
Lucia has a number of pets, including many parrots – such as Cleo her Alexandrian parrot – and all sorts of rescue birds that have inspired her to work with animals someday.

“I have always wanted to become a vet. When I was little, I used to play vets with my soft toys and bandage them up, caring for them in hospital beds that I made from cardboard boxes and tea towels. It would be a dream come true if can become a real vet one day,” she said.

Lucia’s mum Megan said the Virtual Online Vet Camp also showed her daughter many different areas and careers (in veterinary medicine) that people can have working with animals and that it’s not just limited to becoming a vet.

She added, “Future Vet Kids Camp provided not only enjoyment and excitement (during lockdown), but also hope for children that one day they would still be able to work with animals when the pandemic was over.”
