“I wanted to learn everything there is to know about veterinary science.”
Those words, spoken by 15-year-old Ryan Knox, encompass why the All Creatures Animal Hospital in Amelia holds veterinarian camps for high school age kids every year.
The vet camps, which have in fact become so popular for local students that they have started holding two this year, have attracted more than 75 teenagers in the nine years that the program has been offered (23 students this year alone).
“Vet Camp is a program designed to introduce highly interested high schoolers, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, into the veterinary field,” said program coordinator Steven Grogan. “Students get to participate in every aspect of the daily operations at the All Creatures Animal Hospital.”
