At Seattle Humane, we believe in teaching the next generation about humane animal care. Whether they’re reading with our cats or making new friends at day camp, your children will love coming right into the shelter for fun and learning. It’s good for our pets — and it’s great for your kids!
We offer youth programs that make a difference
New! Summer Workshop Days
Sign up for one, two, or three days of animal-themed fun and learning! Workshop days are filled with crafts, games, and animal visits, just like our summer day camps.
Monday, July 1: Canine Companions ($75)
Learn all about the most popular companion animal in the United States and see how we take care of our canine shelter guests. Tuesday, July 2: Feline Friends ($75)
Calling all cat lovers! Spend the day learning about what makes these purrfect pets so special. Wednesday, July 3: Crazy Critters ($75)
Time to focus on less common pets like small mammals and reptiles! Learn what makes these creatures different from their wild cousins.
Combine all three for a mini-camp experience and save $25.

Critter Camp (ages 7-9) August 19-22
Calling all animal lovers! Time to focus on ALL types of creatures and learn about less traditional pets such as bunnies, rats, hamsters, reptiles and more. Meet some adorable shelter animals and learn how we care for them! Encounter exotic guests, play games, and make new friends. Practicing empathy and compassion for all critters will help children create bonds with animals and people alike.

Does your child love art AND animals? What a perfect pair! Campers will experiment a variety of artistic mediums including paint, photography, and drama. As with all Animal Adventures camps, there will be time for games and animal interactions to get those creative sparks going!
