Paws & Claws (campers entering 1st-3rd grade in the upcoming school year)
A must for young animal-lovers! This session explores what it takes to care for pets of all kinds—furry, feathered, and scaled. Campers dive into the world of pet-ownership by fostering their very own pet-plushie for the week. With plenty of crafts, games, and animal interactions, this camp is guaranteed to get your tail wagging!
Humane Heroes (campers entering 4th-6th grade in the upcoming school year)
Crazy for animals and wanting to make a paw-sitive impact? This session investigates all of the different ways that kids can help pets in our community. Campers will explore the world of animal welfare through innovative activities, games, and animal meet-and-greets. Whether helping out our shelter animals, or learning about proper pet care and humane training techniques—campers are sure to leave with an understanding that it is cool to care!
K9 Academy (campers entering 7th-8th grade in the upcoming school year)
Make a difference in the lives of shelter dogs by providing valuable training to help them find their fur-ever homes! This session focuses on teaching campers the skills of animal behavior and training, through games, activities, and animal interactions. Campers will put these new skills to the test when they are paired with a shelter dog, helping the dogs to build manners and confidence, and helping our campers to build life-long memories!
