Spring Break Caring Kids Camp: Grades 5, 6, and 7

March 26-30, 2018
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

This week-long intensive is for the kind, compassionate, and caring kids who want to make a difference. Learn about dog, cat, and small animal care. Interact with shelter animals and adopted animals. Meet snakes, turtles, and farm animals. Brainstorm ways to help animals and tell their stories, so their shelter stays are short and their lives in their forever home long.

Caring Kids Summer Camps

Each summer the Humane Rescue Alliance offers several week-long Caring Kids Camps. These day camps provide youngsters with an inside look at the day-to-day operations of HRA's shelter and medical center and give them an opportunity to meet and interact with dogs, cats, and small animals at our shelter, as well as a variety of “exotic” animals, ranging from snapping turtles and pythons to Madagascar hissing cockroaches.

Camp offerings change from year to year and may include field trips to large animal sanctuaries or a focus on animals and art. All HRA camps include plenty of companion animal time and informational sessions that teach animal behavior, while emphasizing responsible life-long animal care.
