Animal Humane Society's day camps offer a one-of-a kind experience for kids who love animals!

Students spend time immersed in everything animal at one of our three shelter locations. Each camp features animal-related educational activities, including games, crafts, animal interactions, and more! We create a unique experience for all campers so they can return to our programs year after year.
