Hey kids! If you’re crazy about animals, Camp Kindness is the summer camp for you! Come experience five days of animalistic fun guaranteed to get your tail wagging. Each session will give you plenty of hands-on experiences combined with interesting educational opportunities.
Sessions are Monday through Friday and run for seven weeks during June and July, providing every camper the opportunity to interact with shelter animals. Camp Kindness fills up fast and registration is on a first come, first served basis so you need to be an early bird to catch this worm.
Is my child a Junior or Senior Camper? Junior sessions are for ages 6-9 and go from 9am-noon Senior sessions are for ages 10-13 and go from 1pm-4pm
How many campers are there in each session? We limit each session to 35 campers
Who teaches the sessions? We hire certified classroom teachers.
What if my child has a medical emergency during Camp Kindness? Our camp teachers are all certified in CPR, First Aid, Epi-pens, and AED. They will ensure safety of the children first, but also ensure the parent/guardian is contacted/informed of what is taking place.
Can my child be signed up with a friend? Can we switch sessions? Please remember applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. We cannot hold any spots for potential campers. The best way to ensure both your child and the friend attend the same camp session is to register at the same time. We apologize that we cannot switch camp sessions once registration has been officially processed. A refund can be provided but you will be charged the $30 cancellation fee and then a new registration can be made to register for the same session. * Please note: groupings during camp fluctuate and although youth may sign up for the same session, we cannot guarantee they will be in the same small group/table. They will however, participate in many activities as a large group together.
Will the campers get to play with animals? Each day of camp includes supervised animal interaction as curriculum allows.
How early can I bring my child to camp? Campers should be dropped off to the Center for Humane Education no earlier than 10 minutesprior to the camp start time. Campers must be accompanied by an adult to sign them into camp each day. Camp Staff are not responsible for children until they are signed in by the adult accompanying them. Campers must be picked up and signed out by an adult immediately after camp concludes each day. Late pick-ups will be charged a fee of $1.00 per minute after five minutes. We appreciate your cooperation.
My child attended Camp Kindness last summer, will it be different this year? Yes! The core curriculum remains the same, but new features, speakers, games, crafts and animals are also offered to keep camps fresh! We find that over one-third of our campers are "repeat campers" because they enjoy coming to camp every year!
