BC SPCA summer camps offer kids a unique experience with animals
Don’t let your young animal lover miss the opportunity to spend a week at a BC SPCA summer camp! There’s still space left in the week-long camps, August 8-12 and August 15-19 in Campbell River, which immerse kids aged eight to 11 in a range of fun, engaging activities that increase their understanding about companion, farm and wild animals and help them develop skills to make a difference for animals in their community.
“Spaces are filling quickly – some of our locations are already full, but we do still have some spots available in certain locations,” says Paula Neuman, humane education manager with the BC SPCA, noting that this is the first time the camps have been offered in Campbell River. “We’re excited to offer these engaging and interactive camps for Campbell River’s young animal lovers. They’ll have so much fun!”
The camps offer a variety of activities, including outdoor and indoor games, hand-on creative projects, making toys and treats for the animals, shelter tours and visits with specially selected and approved shelter animals.
“Participants can expect to have fun and make friends while learning about animals and how we can best care for and protect them,” says Neuman.
