Does your child love animals and want to learn more about our work with homeless animals? Our Critter Camps are specially geared for budding animal welfare advocates.
These unique programs for children ages 10-13 provide a fun and educational opportunity to work with animals and include dog walking and socializing, cat socializing, dog training, learning about house rabbits, humane education, animal artwork and games. Participants also observe the important work that goes on in the clinic. Basic, or beginning camp, is geared for children new to our programs. The camps generally run in the summer months. Advanced camp, which are scheduled at the end of summer, target children who have taken previous camps or have a strong interest in animal welfare, and offer a more in-depth, hands-on experience at the shelter. Sessions are limited to 10 participants.
An introductory two-day spring camp is set for March 20-21; two summer camps for beginners are set for June 12-16 and June 26-30. Two advanced summer camps are scheduled for July 17-21 and July 31-Aug. 4.
