Summer Camp is Coming!

It’s almost time for AWS Summer Camp!

Each summer, AWS holds week-long workshops for children aged 7 to 13. The students have the opportunity to interact with pets, play games, do crafts and go on field trips, all while learning about animal care, handling, and animal welfare-related issues. Each student gets an AWS t-shirt, a certificate of completion, and a lesson in compassion. Snacks are provided, but students bring their own lunch.

Visit our Summer Camp page for more information regarding dates and how to register.
