During Spring Break 2020, spark your child’s curiosity at The Health Museum, where children will explore medical sciences and the human body through hands-on interactive camps and workshops at the Spring Break Discovery Camps: Veterinary Science Week.
The Spring Break Discovery Camps at The Health Museum will be open for children ages 5 to 13 years old, and will take place from March 16th through March 20th, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If your child loves animals and wants to learn how to heal and take care of them, then Mini Vet or Junior Vet is the perfect camp! Children will engage in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities while learning about medical science and the human body.
Campers will take part in health-themed interactive experiences and explore all that The Health Museum has to offer. Kids will have intelligent fun, make friends, and make the most out of their Spring Break!
Camp course options will include:
Mini Vet (ages 5-7 years old)
• Mini Vet is a fun educational camp that will introduce your young doctor to medical tools and terms as well as the wonderful world of science. Little Vets will dissect owl pellets, learn how to use a microscope, and count and compare animal bones with those in their bodies. Little Vets will learn a plethora of age-appropriate medical information that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) education. You will be amazed at how much your little vet will do!
Junior Vet (ages 8-10 years old)
• Junior Vet is a fun and educational hands-on veterinary camp that will teach the scientific process. Junior Vets will be fully engaged in this week-long introduction to veterinary medicine. They’ll compare frog muscles with those of human muscles, use rulers to measure and classify bones, use dissection tools for precise investigations of organs, and operate microscopes to learn about major body systems. Daily dissections will assist in teaching your future doctor similarities and differences between humans and other species.
Before and aftercare will be available for families who need it for an additional fee. Before camp care is available from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. and after camp care is available from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
