During the camp, youth will engage with NC State students, faculty, and staff to explore animal science and learn more about the livestock and agricultural industries and related careers.

  • Visits to the beef and dairy cattle, swine, sheep, goat and horse educational units
  • Run laboratory experiments
  • Attend farm and industry tours and hear from industry guests
  • Explore the science, technology and biotechnology of livestock industries and the interaction of animal production and food safety
  • Participate in leadership activities
  • And make many new friends from across North Carolina and beyond.
