Animal Explorer Camp – Session 3

July 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - July 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

The Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County will host four sessions of Animal Explorer Camp this summer in June and July.  Each camp session is open to children aged 7 through 12, lasts five days (Monday-Friday) between 8am-12pm and will have 20-25 children.

Animal Explorer Camp will take place at the Humane Society’s facility located at 935 Farm Road in Shelby Farms.  Camp dates are as follows:

Session 1: June 11-15
Session 2: June 25-29
Session 3: July 9-13
Session 4: July 23-27

Dive into the world of animal welfare and learn compassion, responsibility, safety and care from Humane Society staff and other knowledgeable experts in the animal field.  Campers will get hands-on experiences with both dogs and cats as they learn about what makes them unique and what they need from us as their caregivers.

Camper activities lead by camp counselors will include:

  • Behind the scene tours of the Humane Society.
  • Hands on with different animals. Get to know dogs, cats, rabbits and farm animals.
  • Learn how to train a dog, feed a cat, comfort a bunny, pet a reptile and discover why animals are such an important part of our lives.
  • Educational learning games about animal behavior and body language, farm and companion animals, wildlife, conservation and how to help animals.
  • Campers will sharpen their observation skills as they learn how animals communicate and rely on humans to be sensitive to their needs.
  • New this year! Field trip to expand the learning experience by including other animal welfare organizations. This year campers will head to Shelby Farms Parks Conservancy to learn about what they do for our community.

The cost to participate in the camp is $200 per session and includes one t-shirt.
