Animal Camp

by ACTIVE Network

Do you know a child who is passionate about animals? SPCA Animal Camps and Workshops are guaranteed to be a purr-fect fit! These popular programs offer children a unique mix of fun and educational hands-on experiences that nurture compassion, a respect for all living things, and make a difference for the animals in our care. (And have we mentioned that it’s FUN!?)

Children learn about animal-related jobs from professional guest speakers including SPCA Humane Investigators, Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation staff technicians. Camps and Workshop activities also include lessons in animal safety and handling, making enrichments for our shelter pets, and many fun visits with adoptable animals in the adoption center and barn.
