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

April 15-19, 2019
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Everyone has a story to tell - Animal Tales introduces fifth, sixth, and seventh graders to companion animals and their stories. Campers will be meet animals awaiting adoption, HRA alumni, and other guests. Campers will promote shelter animals’ stories and delight in the happy endings told by many of the visitors!

Campers will make toys for shelter animals, create animal care budgets, promote adoptions, develop a long list of names to be used for future shelter animals, and explore other ways to help HRA help the animals. The week is designed for kids who care about animals and are eager to make the world better for them.

Registration Open

Caring Kids Summer Camps

Each summer the Humane Rescue Alliance offers several week-long Caring Kids Camps. These day camps provide youth with an inside look at the day-to-day operations of HRA's shelter and medical center. Campers have the opportunity to meet and interact with dogs, cats, and small animals at our shelter. They participate in activities that help to promote adoptions, provide enrichment for shelter animals, and explore opportunities to become life-long animal welfare advocates. 

Camp offerings change from year to year, but all HRA camps include companion animal time and informational sessions that encourage kindness, compassion, and social action.
