Calling all kiddos! Looking for a fun way to spend your summer?
Join a summer camp with Calgary Humane Society!
Camp is a place where kids connect with animals. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for children to interact and learn about the animals that share our world. An enthusiastic staff of instructors and friendly animals give your child an enriching experience filled with hands-on animal encounters, fun activities, and crafts. As they have fun, campers learn respect, compassion, and how to provide a lifetime of care for animals.
Now do we have your attention?
Here are some of the themes we will be offering for 2019:
Pets 101 (Grade 1-3):
Everything you wanted to know about having a pet but were afraid to ask! Which animals make good pets? What kind of care do they need? Will this puppy stay this small forever…? Campers will explore all these questions and more. Perfect for the camper who may be ready to take on the responsibilities of pet ownership- or the one who maybe needs a bit more info.
Everything Animal (Grades 4-6):
For campers who love all animals, we have Everything Animal! Campers learn about a wide variety of the animal friends that share our world. Animal themed games, crafts and activities are selected to showcase animal adaptations and diversity. Of course, animal camp would not be complete without interactions with friendly animals at Calgary Humane Society!
Creative Critters (Grade 1-3, 4-6):
This theme provides budding artists the chance to flex their creative muscles and creating animal themed creative projects. Activities focus around the art animals create in our natural world and creating projects inspired by animals and our natural world! Of course, no day would be complete without interaction with our shelter animals! Perfect for the camper who prefers arts, crafts and creative projects.
Animal Careers… Unleashed! (Grade 4-6):
Do you know an aspiring dog groomer? Kitty cuisine creator? Animal Cop? This week is for them! Campers will explore the wide array of jobs and careers where humans work side by side with animals. The week includes meeting special guests in both animal welfare and other professions, even seeing first-hand what some of our own shelter professionals do day to day! Fun activities, games, creative crafts and interact with a variety of critters round out the week.
Animal Investigations (Grade 7-9 only):
Ever wonder what the laws are that protect pets? What about other animals? How are all those laws enforced and what happens when they are broken? Find out through this special, four-day camp where you will investigate, well… animal investigations and law enforcement! Campers will try their hand at solving practice cases, learn about forensics and the information animal investigators use when trying to solve a case as well as meet men and women of the law enforcement community including our own Cruelty Investigation and Animal Protection peace officers. This camp will provide understanding of our judicial system, the chance to see what a being an animal investigator looks like and most importantly, how to be an ally in the fight to protect animals.
…and much much more!
