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 7-8: Animal Advocates
This camp is intended for young animal advocates who wish to build on their training skills and increase their knowledge of animal welfare. Through interactive, hands-on lessons, campers will have the opportunity to explore animal-related careers, learn about animal welfare issues, and spend time with an array of animals. As an added highlight, campers will work with staff members from our animal hospital and spay/neuter clinic to learn about providing medical care for animals, including the optional activity of observing an animal surgery.
