Find answers to common questions about BC SPCA Summer Camps.
Q - How much time will my child spend directly with the animals at BC SPCA summer camp?
Our camps are focused on learning about animals. The amount of time spent directly with animals will vary from day to day and even from location to location but will average approximately 1 hour/day. We provide opportunities every day to interact with animals. The kind of animals will depend on what is available at the shelter. Please keep in mind that we are first and foremost a shelter for animals and their needs and well-being are our top priority.
Q - Can BC SPCA summer camps accommodate children with special needs?
BC SPCA Summer Camps for Kids welcome children of all abilities. However, each child with special needs will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis depending on the size of the camp and the special requirements needed.
If your child has an assistant at school for behavioural issues or special needs which would make it difficult for your child to attend camp on their own, we would ask that you send a qualified person to attend with your child as our staff do not have expertise in dealing with special need requirements.
