The Arizona Animal Welfare League’s robust education department is geared up for summer with three revamped week-long camp programs for kids between the ages of 6 and 17: Dog Days at Kitty Camp, Animal Advocacy, and Veterinary Science Camp.
Campers can spend an unforgettable, interactive, and animal-filled week exploring a range of topics focusing on animal care, veterinary medicine, responsible pet ownership, and how to have a future working on behalf of animal welfare. Activities include animal encounters and interactions, behind-the-scenes experiences, crafts, games, guest speakers, and more! Camps begin the first week of June and run through July 30. Classes are currently limited to eight students per camp. Participants must bring their own snacks, packed lunch, and water bottles.
