Kids join the HSMSC team for a “hands on” week of activities focused on animal care and animal behavior training. Camps are held at the HSMSC facility Monday through Friday from 8am to noon. Kids ages 7-12 are welcome. Camp dates are:
Week 1: June 3-7
Week 2: June 17-21
Week 3: July 8-12
Week 4: July 22-26
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 include:
Campers will sharpen their observation skills as they learn how animals communicate and rely on humans to be sensitive to their needs. We have expanded the learning experience with a trip to Shelby Farms Park Conservancy to learn what they do for our community.
The cost to participate in the camp is $200 per session and includes one t-shirt.
Camps are held at the HSMSC facility located on 935 Farm Road, Memphis, TN 38134.
