KIDS FOR CRITTERS CAMP
June 12-16 • Ages 12-14 ONLY Service learning focus. Includes three field trips.
This camp is designed for pre-teen and early teens who want to roll up their sleeves and make a difference for animals! In addition to traditional Kids for Critters Camp activities like training shelter dogs, kitten enrichment and volunteer work in the shelter, we will take a bus to a different rescue partner on Tues., Wed., and Thurs. of this week to learn about and help animals at those locations. Wednesday will be a trip to Longmeadow Rescue Ranch.
We'll be celebrating ALL animals, ALL week long as we engage in fun interactive games and activities, meet animal experts and ambassadors and put our compassion into action through service projects that benefit animals:
» Embark on a scavenger hunt in our shelter!
» Explore animal-related careers!
» Become a junior Humane Officer!
» Observe veterinary surgery!
» Make enrichment toys for shelter pets!
» Decorate kennels!
» Much, much more!
Campers will have many opportunities to interact with our shelter animals and guest animals. Other popular activities include training and reading to our shelter dogs and socializing shelter kittens and cats, providing enrichment and socialization for pets as they await their life-long loving homes.
A highlight of our week-long camp is our day-long fieldtrip on Wednesday to our Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, MO where we enjoy a wagon ride around the sanctuary and get up
close and personal with our beloved Barn Buddies and their fellow farm animal friends who have been rescued and rehabilitated by our loving staff.
