Livestock Science Camp

High school students with an interest in careers with animals, particularly farm animals, but not necessarily looking to pursue a career in veterinary medicine can explore the diverse options available. Participants will spend a week living on campus, engaging in hands-on lessons with livestock at the teaching farms and campus laboratories, tour local livestock industries, and develop leadership skills. No experience with livestock is necessary. Visit the Livestock Science Camp page to learn more.

VetCAMP is designed to allow pre-veterinary high school students to delve into the immense field of veterinary medicine. Students will hear from veterinarians in many different fields and take a behind the scenes tour of the NC State University Vet School. Lessons will be given on veterinary clinic basics, surgery, dissections and anatomy. For more information, visit the VetCAMP website.
