Thursday & Friday, 8:30am-3:30pm. All sessions include activities and supplies to take home, as well as the option to join virtual programs on off-campus days. There will be an opportunity in June to sign up for a fully remote “camp-at-home” experience with virtual programs Monday-Friday and a special supply kit. These programs are for campers ages 7-12 (+/- one year if attending with a sibling). Please keep checking
for programming more suitable for other ages.

Week 2: July 26-30
Week 3: August 9-13

Each week will have the same lesson themes and activities, although guests may vary. Due to the importance of keeping groups small and stable, we cannot permit campers to be registered for more than one in-person session. Please read our full FAQ and camp policies
The fee is $250 per camper. If you would like to request a full or partial scholarship for you camper, please

Service Projects Need community service hours for school? We can help with that!
You can organize a drive to gather donations of pet food, supplies, toys and cat litter. We distribute these to low-income pet owners, seniors, and pet owners living with HIV/AIDS or cancer. Consider distributing
Kindness Cards to make an impact in your community. You might find that pets need help in your very own neighborhood.
You can also help raise money for pets by holding bake sales, yard sales, craft sales, participate in walk-a-thons, and much more! Feel free to use your imagination to come up with a fundraising idea. Our online fundraising website People Helping Pets can also help you collect donations at your event. Learn more about
hosting a fundraiser!
