Humane Amigos Camp

Spend your school break with pets

The Humane Amigos Camps will give your child a new perspective on caring for animals, preventing animal cruelty, understanding animal behavior, and more. We use a variety of activities that stress an appreciation for our environment and preservation of our natural world: classroom activities, creative and artistic exercises, hands-on animal care, engaging and fun games, and character-building lessons.

Kids and pets get together during Humane Amigos Camps. Campers spend a minimum of 2 hours daily caring for different camp foster animals. These animals may include ball pythons, rabbits, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and dogs. Humane Amigos Camps provides children with an in-depth, hands-on education about animal care and the human-animal bond.
