Penn State hosts an annual summer camp for rising junior and senior high school students interested in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences.

 UPDATE:

Dear Students and Parents:

COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting our summer plans.  Visitors are still not permitted to the campus as of today.  Thus, our decision is to replace the summer camp with a possible in-person, one-day, hands-on activities in the fall.  It will most likely be held in mid-October or early November pending COVID-19.  Please check this web site for updates.
