Does your child love animals? Do they want to learn more about our shelter and the important work of caring for homeless animals?
La Plata County Humane Society is offering 30 kids ages 11-15 a fun and educational opportunity to work with animals! Kampers have hands-on learning opportunities with a variety of pets and learn the importance of how to care for animals, be responsible pet owners, and help to make our community a safer place for all animals.
2020 Summer Kamp Dates (Cost is $175/per kamp)
15 kids are accepted into each kamp. Due to high popularity of our summer kamps, we are accepting first time kampers. Returning kampers will be placed on a wait list and later pulled in a lottery. To help accommodate the number kiddos interested in joining the fun, please only sign your kiddo up for one kamp. To add your returning kamper name to the wait list, email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
