Registration for our January 2020 camp is now open!
Week of 13-17 January is already SOLD OUT!
Veterinary professionals, wildlife handlers, expert animal trainers and our highly qualified instructors all work together to create a fascinating and fun program that is sure to engage and inspire the budding veterinarian in your child.
Via interactive discussions, demonstrations and hands-on opportunities, the Wombats learn the basic skills in working with animals, such as animal husbandry, handling and basic medical care. As part of the program, all Wombats will be camp certified in Pet First Aid.
In addition to all of the interesting information and learning opportunities the kids still get plenty of time to just be kids as instructors lead them in a variety of animal related games and activities. Of course there will also be plenty of time for cuddles and ear scratches with their new animal friends.

Our Kookaburra program is ideal for kids who have a special interest in animals or who have expressed an interest in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine.
Our Kookaburra program will expose the kids to everything from bipedals to arachnids and just about everything in between! They will learn the importance of why and how to draw blood and even try their hand at blood draws, work through real veterinary case studies, learn about the important work being done by shelter groups and rescue organizations as well as seeing all the behind the scenes action at the very dynamic Balmain Veterinary Hospital and spend a day touring and helping out at the Animal Welfare League in Kemps Creek!
All of that plus plenty of hands on time with a wide variety of animals.

Our Junior Vet program is for those kids who are quite serious about exploring the world of veterinary medicine as a career option.
Exotics or small animal veterinarian? Or perhaps wildlife medicine is what you’re most passionate about? Our Junior Vets discover what kind of veterinarian they might like to be starting with basic K9 and feline anatomy, suturing techniques and a workshop on how to draw blood. Case studies which allow them to establish a diagnosis, prognosis and treatment recommendations pepper a week that includes excursions to an animal rehab facility, the basics of ultrasound, and an opportunity to learn what studying veterinary medicine is really all about with a tour of the Critical Skills Centre at The University of Sydney’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Camperdown!
Of course there will also be plenty of time for cuddles and ear scratches with their new animal friends.
