Day camps for kids

Three kids with dog

Animal Humane Society's day camps offer fun, educational experiences for kids who love animals. Animal interactions, a tour of the shelter, games and crafts are the essentials, but each camp is designed with different topics in mind. They may include visits from special guests, animal service projects, and so much more.

Camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
