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.

Sign up for our themed one-day workshops during the school year, or for a week-long session in the summer!

Based on current health and safety recommendations, we are temporarily suspending our programs for children until April 9th, including Spring camps, classroom visits, library programs, and SPCA tours. While we are not aware of any student, volunteer, or staff member who has been exposed to COVID-19, we made this decision in an abundance of caution. We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.
