Humane Amigos Camp

Spend your school break helping pets

Turn your compassion into action at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona! HSSA Campers will get hands-on experience caring for and socializing with our Education Ambassador Animals, such as guinea pigs, rats, ball pythons, and more! Campers will learn more about their animal companions and gain skills to foster a greater human-animal bond. With interactive activities, crafts and games, who could turn down this opportunity to spend their school break at HSSA?
