Summer Camp

Every summer brings the sound of fun and laughter to our shelter as kids of all ages participate in our Kidz ‘n Critters Summer Camp program.  Each one-week session is specially geared to a particular grade level so kids have a chance to not only learn about animals but make new friends as well.

Our camp program is:  

Educational – with various animal experts sharing their passion and knowledge as guest speakers, complimented with videos and activity sheets/handouts

Fun – with various games, activities, and crafts.

Hands-on – time each day is spent socializing the shelter animals

Experiential – each session goes on a fieldtrip

Relevant – helps children learn about responsible pet care

Interesting – topics range from protecting wildlife, why spay/neuter, what is a community cat and more, careers working with animals, and more!

Camps run Monday-Friday, 8:30-1:00.  Cost is $125 for the first child and $100 for each additional sibling.  Scholarships are available.  To accommodate as many children as possible, each child may only attend one session per summer.
