Day camps for kids

Animal Humane Society Day Camp

Animal Humane Society's day camps offer a one of a kind experience for kids who love animals! Kids take a tour of the shelter and learn about the important work AHS does for animals and our community. We play games, make crafts and meet the animals staying with us at the shelter. Each camp is designed to be unique, so kids can attend them all and learn something new each time!

Day camps are held from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
