Critter Camp 2017
St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center’s popular Kids’ Critter Camp is accepting registrations for this summer’s weeklong sessions—three options for children entering grades 2-4 and two for those entering grades 4-6 in September. Children who love animals enjoy learning more about them and about the role of the animal shelter, increasing their compassion and respect for the creatures with whom they share the environment. Each session runs Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm at St. Hubert’s Madison campus located at 575 Woodland Avenue.
Each fun filled day is packed with a wide variety of activities to engage all animal loving campers! Each day will consist of interactive lessons on a wide variety of animal welfare topics, including companion animal care & safety, adoption & rehoming, the importance of population control, and farm animal advocacy, all to build positive and enriching behaviors with other beings. Many of St. Hubert’s professional staff including behavior specialists, dog trainers, pet therapy teams, and ACOs, visit campers to share their vast array of knowledge on the specifics of animal sheltering. In addition, animal experts from outside of St. Hubert’s will also make special guest appearances, including the Morris County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit and a virtual visit with The Elephant Sanctuary located in Tennessee. Finally, each day will also include opportunities for group and individual games and crafts.
Please join us for an experience you are sure to never forget!
