Critter Camp 2018
St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center’s popular Kids’ Critter Camp is accepting registrations for this summer’s week-long sessions—two options for children entering grades 2-4 and three for those entering grades 4-6 in September. Children who love animals will enjoy learning about a number of animal species, as well as the role of the animal shelter. Camp is designed to educate and inspire our youth to practice a lifestyle of compassion, respect and responsibility through the humane treatment of animals.
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, vet techs, dog trainers, pet therapy teams, and ACOs (animal control officers), 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. Campers will also have the opportunity to observe our adoptable animals on an educational tour of our shelter. 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! Each session runs Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm at St. Hubert’s Madison campus located at 575 Woodland Avenue.
