Texas A&M Galveston’s Sea Camp comes to Habitat for Horses!

Smokey Culver, our new Volunteer Coordinator, lead a tour of 15 prospective Texas A & M students around the grounds at our Hitchcock Ranch. Some of these young people are interested in becoming our future veterinarians! Smokey told them about what it takes to volunteer and care for the horses at our rehabilitation ranch. It takes a great deal of work, love and time to bring a horse that has been starved and / or abused back to health! The young people also got the chance to meet Habitat for Horse’s leading Ambassador – Paco the Donkey!

Sea Camp is a week long summer camp for 10-18 year olds, that mainly focuses on all aspects of the marine environment. However, campers also get a chance to explore other areas of veterinarian medicine – such as large animal medicine that covers equine medical care. Housed out of Texas A&M University at Galveston, their staff is able to engage over 1000 campers every summer in a hands on fashion.
