2018 Furry Friends Kids Camp
August 13 @ 12:30 pm - August 17 @ 4:00 pm$125
The Humane Society of Jefferson County will host its Furry Friends Kids Camp Monday, August 13 through Friday, August 17. This week long day camp will provide a fun-filled experience for children as they learn about kindness and compassion for the animals who share our world. Campers will also learn how shelters, like the Humane Society of Jefferson County, help animals in need. Camp takes place from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. in the shelter’s community education room. Registration is limited to 24 students and is open to children ages 8 to 12.
Campers will participate in animal related programs, games, crafts and activities, including a behind the scenes shelter tour and interacting with animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and domestic rats. Some of the animal experts offering presentations include representatives from the Madison Area Herpetological Society who will be bringing along a number of reptiles and amphibians, and Joal Derse Dauer and her dog Sadie. Joal is the author of “Saving Sadie: How a Dog No One Wanted Inspired the World”. Sadie delivers a strong anti-bullying message and reminds kids & adults everywhere to think about what you CAN do, not what you CAN’T do. Joal & Sadie most recently were the guests of honor at the 2018 Furry Friends 5K.
Registration is now closed.
