Our award winning summer camps are a fantastic way for children to learn about responsible pet ownership, animal handling and daily care. We offer fun, field trips and furry friends - you can’t beat that!


 

2022 Summer camp


After a long wait, we are so excited to be providing our summer camps in person again! 

Although we are so excited to meet you all again in person, safety remains our top priority. By signing up for summer camp, you agree to follow any and all COVID-19 regulations that the Humane Society may put in place. We will be accepting a limited number of campers in each week this year, as we remain COVID conscious. As such, we anticipate our summer camp to fill up extremely quickly, so register early to guarantee your spot! 

Details: 

 Join the Humane Society for another summer camp season! For children ages 6 - 12, our summer camp provides a safe space to learn, meet new friends (animal and human!), and play. Each summer camp week is filled with animal themed games and activities, a weekly field trip (only if deemed safe closer to camp) , guest presenters, educational activities, crafts, and to end the week of right...pizza!

Children are placed in groups of campers their own age, and our camps have one of the regions' best staff to camper ratio. Our staff are passionate about the camp experience, are first aid certified, and have all had experience leading campers. 

Come and find out why the Humane Society's summer camp is consistently ranked in the top 3 camps in the region.
