More about camp
Camp hours run from 9 a.m.– 4 p.m.
Presidents' Day Campers will participate in some of the same activities offered in our Summer Camps. Presidents' Day Camp will have a special focus on Leadership, including character, teamwork and community service.
No. We have many children who attend camp with us year after year, so we make a point to offer a variety of new activities each time. Some activities simply can't be changed (animal interactions, for example, are limited to certain activities for the safety of the campers and the animals), and we sometimes repeat activities that were especially popular - but staff strive to plan as many new themes, games, crafts, and learning activities as possible for every camp.
Each day at camp includes time where kids are interacting with shelter animals, but that's only one part of the camp experience; Presidents' Day Camp includes lots of other animal-related activities, too. Please note that Presidents' Day Camp is not a junior volunteer program; campers will not be performing shelter volunteer duties during camp.
Unfortunately, we do not have extended childcare available. If camp hours are a challenge for your family, invite a friend whose family would be able to provide transportation.
Campers should come to the main adoption entrance at the shelter. Our shelters are not open until 12:00 noon on weekdays, but camp staff will come out to welcome campers shortly before 9:00 a.m.
At the end of the online registration process, you will be prompted to download a page with more information about camp. This newsletter will include information about checking in and signing out, what to wear, items to bring, etc.
We do our best to provide kid-friendly and healthy snacks. Snacks may include things like popcorn, cheese crackers, pretzels, trail mix, applesauce, granola bars, Chex mix, etc. If your child has food allergies, please discuss this with camp staff to make sure snacks are appropriate for your child; or if you prefer, you may also send snacks from home.
