Summer camp for animal-loving kids

AHS camper at craft time

AHS Summer Camp is a five-day, animal-themed day camp for kids entering grades 3-8.

Kids spend time immersed in everything animal at one of our three shelter locations. Each camp includes animal-related educational activities, including games, crafts, guest speakers, animal interactions, and more!

We create a unique experience for all campers so they can return to our programs year after year!

Due to our limited capacities this year, we will not be offering a waitlist. If a spot becomes available in a previously full camp session, it will be reflected below and open on a first come, first serve basis. 

Registration details

Summer Camp registration opens Monday, March 8 at 8 AM and is first come, first served. Camp will be offered in-person only with enhanced safety protocols and reduced capacities to allow for social distancing. 

Summer Camp runs Monday through Friday, 9 AM - 4 PM, unless otherwise noted. The fee is $355 per child. 

Before registering, review our summer camp policy changes.
