This summer, the San Francisco SPCA offers a whole line-up of Summer Animal Camps for kids interested in learning more about animals and the animal welfare community. Our camps promote kindness and compassion for all creatures. Curricula combine enriching activities and experiential learning to foster childrens' love and understanding of animals.
Oh, and did we mention cuddles with kitties and puppies? What better way to spend the summer than making new friends, learning together, playing outrageous games, and hanging out with amazing animals who need your help? Kids aren’t the only ones who will have fun... our shelter animals receive tons of attention and TLC.
The SF SPCA is happy to offer this opportunity to mature, respectful young people. We are looking for campers who want to build on their love for furry friends by learning how to provide a lifetime of love and care for animals.
Animal Camps combine:
Animal care and behavior learning activities, team projects, and craft activities
Hands-on interactions with animals including cats, kittens, dogs, guinea pigs, rats, chickens, and more
Discussions with animal experts and professionals from several animal welfare agencies
Grades 1-2: Kind Kids
This exciting camp is designed to teach young children about pets and being responsible pet guardians. Campers will learn about proper pet care, animal needs, dog bite prevention, and kindness for all living things. Most importantly, Kind Kids Camp also includes an abundance of animal interactions with a variety of animals. The interactive, activity-based learning process helps campers make connections between animals and their own life experiences.
