The Northshore Humane Society invites children ages 6 – 13 to spend a week in camp this summer celebrating companion animals as they engage in fun interactive games and activities, meet animal experts and ambassadors, and put their compassion into action through service projects that benefit the shelter’s homeless animals.
Children will symbolically adopt a shelter pet and be given an opportunity to interact with the rescued dogs and cats at the rescue.
NHS summer camp programs foster a sense of responsibility and respect for animals through inquiry and experienced-based learning. Activities will include helping the rescued pets here at our facility as well as learning the importance of pet care and advocacy. A variety of animal – related guest speakers attend each week.
Weeks will not be separated into different age groups this year.
Camp is Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Drop-off begins at 8:30 am.
One week of camp is $250 per child.
Lunch and snacks are provided by parents.
Before care (7:30 am – 9:00 am) and after care (4:00 pm – 5:30 pm) are also available.
They are $50 separately per week; package for both is $75 per week.
T-shirts are also available for an additional $25 and can be purchased through the registration page.
