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!
