What makes our camps special?

At CAP Kids Camps we learn a lot about our furry guests, what they eat, how they live, and the challenges they face.  We discover what makes each animal special and why it matters how we treat them. Kids are empowered to find out how they can help companion pets and wildlife and are encouraged to critically think about their role in caring, protecting, and respecting all creatures, great and small. 


Our camps are solid humane education programs that incorporate science, technology, and art. Games, crafts, and hands-on animal interactions make each day fun and help children to develop a positive and respectful attitude towards all living beings. Camps are kept small so that each child gets quality time with the various animal guests.  


This is a 9:00 am- 3:00 pm camp and a great option for children yearning to learn about animals and wanting to help our shelter pets.
