The submission deadline is noon on Feb. 28.

Modeled after the first- and second-year MSU CVM student experience, the camp gives students ages 10-17 an opportunity to explore the world of veterinary medicine under the guidance of faculty and current Doctor of Veterinary Medicine students.

Through interactive labs and other hands-on activities, campers gain insight into a variety of career options, from small to large animal, public health to pathology, and research to pet health.
