Gould Academy’s Farm and Forest Program partners with teaching veterinarians to offer a high-energy, challenging, educational experience with a strong focus on hands-on learning. Gould Academy’s Veterinary Science Camp is a wonderful opportunity for students interested in medicine, science, and animals.

During the Summer Veterinary Science Camp students will:

  • safely handle a variety of large and small animals for assessment
  • use laboratory tools unique to practicing medicine
  • administer medications and vaccinations
  • draw and analyze blood
  • perform mock surgery maintaining sterile conditions
  • examine critical organs with the goal of deeper understanding of function
  • identify normal and abnormal cells
  • and engage in conversations about ethics as it relates to veterinary medicine

Gould’s on-campus farm horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, and rabbits. Gould’s McLaughlin Science Center provides cutting-edge laboratory classrooms and equipment. The Bethel Animal Hospital, a modern small animal hospital, is less than two miles from campus.
