Purdue University – Boiler Vet Camp
For those excited by science, who enjoy working with animals and would like to find out more about what it takes to become a veterinarian or veterinary technician, this program is just the ticket! Aspiring veterinary healthcare professionals will experience first-hand the fascinating world of veterinary medicine.
The only camp of its kind in Indiana, Boiler Vet Camp gives want-to-be veterinarians or veterinary technicians the chance to live out their dreams.
