About this Program

During the week-long day camp, students learn to be as curious as a kitten, as energetic as a puppy and as agile as a bunny. They enrich the lives of AWS animals with hands-on projects such as preparing treats or reading stories. They participate in interactive games, lessons and presentations to learn about companion animals and the many roles they play in our lives. During the week, students take several off-site field trips to learn about wildlife conservation and animal rehabilitation. Every day of camp, students engage their curiosity, use their imagination and make new friends of all kinds!

Daily instruction from AWSโ€™ Youth Programs Coordinator helps students become the best animal advocates they can be. Whether students love snakes or squirrels, horses or house cats, puppies or pandas, AWS camp is the place to be!

2024 Camp Schedule & Registration

AWS Summer Camp is a one-week experience, not a full-summer experience, as the activities follow the same schedule each week. Thank you!

Is your 2-5 grader looking for some after school fun? AWS' March After School Club registration is open! 

During Club meetings, led by our Youth Programs coordinator, students will dive deeper into animal care by occasionally volunteering at the Adoption Center, making crafts, playing games, and generally decompressing from the day. They will also get to hang out with resident classroom pets! 

The club takes place on Thursday afternoons, all March long. Don't miss your chance to sign your child up today so they can be an AWS Club Member!

Help your pet stay happy and healthy by ensuring their mouth stays clean! Know the early signs and symptoms of dental disease and how you can help prevent it in your pet. The more you know, the more proactive you can be!

While the outside of your pet's teeth and gums are important to keep clean, a bigger problem can lie beneath. When bacteria begins to form on the teeth, a substance called plaque forms. When the plaque calcifies (or hardens), a different substance called tartar develops. Eventually, tartar eats away at the gums and causes pockets to form in your pet's mouth which fill with bacteria. This can cause a slew of problems under the gum line and, if left untreated, can enter your pet's bloodstream and effect their heart, liver, and other organs. This is why routine cleanings and dental check-ups are so important! 

Our Community Clinic is offering a special dental care package to all families who have or call to set up dental appointments for their pet in the month of February (while supplies last.) ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฎ๐˜ (๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿณ) ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿต๐Ÿฎ-๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐˜โ€™๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜.

Although they can be somewhat timid and cautious, when a rabbit is feeling confident they tend to go exploring! Rabbits love to look down tunnels, dig under blankets, pull up rugs, and fit into smaller spaces. All in the name of curiosity! Rabbits are also crepuscular, which means they're most active at dawn and dusk. So, if you have a sleepy rabbit during the day, that just means they'll need more time to explore their home during the early morning or evening! 

Cauliflower, one of our newest residents who is ready to find his happy home, is one curious guy! He loves to rearrange his living space and he never shies away from an adventure. He will fill your home with so much love and lughter!
