In 2016 and 2017, Critter Campers got to know a wide variety of animals, from companions like Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, and Ferrets, to getting to go offsite to the Brickner Ranch and see Lemurs, Zebras, Peacocks, and even a Tiger! The last day of camp, the owners of Hill Country Trail Rides brought horses down for the kids to learn about and even ride. They went behind the scenes at the Hill Country SPCA, into areas not seen by the public, to learn about the plight of shelter pets, and how they are cared for. Campers also learned to create animal-themed arts and crafts projects to help enrich the lives of shelter pets. Through fun and engaging activities, they learned about responsible pet ownership, animal care, dog training, and about animals from all corners of the world.
We will continue to teach children about understanding, respect, and empathy towards all living beings. Campers are dropped off at the shelter in the morning and will rotate through four different classes each day, with an offsite field trip scheduled on Thursday.
In 2018, Critter Camp will run from June 18th - 22nd, and from July 23rd-27th.
Registration will open April 3rd, 2018 and only the first 40 children registered are guaranteed a spot.
