Animal Camp

Our summer camp is an intensive learning experience for students that love animals. We emphasize responsible pet care and foster children’s understanding and concern for all species. Guest speakers bring a variety of pets for the campers to meet. Besides meeting different pets, camp activities include visiting our Wildlife Center, practicing dog training, playing pet-related games, and learning about current animal-welfare issues. We will be offering six sessions of camp for two different age groups. Camp runs from 9:00 am-2:30 pm.  We are not able to offer extended care prior to or after camp hours. There is a $425 per child camp fee.

We are planning to host Animal Camp in-person for the summer of 2021 with safety measures that include wearing masks at all times except while eating, social distancing, enhanced cleaning methods, among more strategies. To best accommodate these safety measures we have initially reduced the capacity of each camp session. As summer approaches we hope to increase the number of students accepted and fill the sessions from the waitlist. Please be aware that despite all of our best efforts, Animal Camp may still be subject to change or take place virtually depending on risks associated with COVID-19. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.

2021 Animal Camp dates are:

June 14-18 (ages 8-10)
June 21-25 (ages 11-13)
July 12-16 (ages 8-10)
July 26-30 (ages 8-10)
August 2-6 (ages 11-13)
August 9-13 (ages 8-10)

All sessions for Animal Camp in 2021 are currently full. We are no longer accepting names for the waitlist. Please consider signing your child up for Animal Camp next summer. Registration will open on March 1st, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.
