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, great 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, 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.

Our Fall Camp focused on HSSA's marketing techniques and gave children a chance to experience pet portrait photography, copywriting, illustration, and making television appearances.

Who should come to camp?

The Humane Society’s Humane Amigos Camps are each designed for specific age groups who are interested in the following topics:

  • Animals

  • Animal welfare

  • Improving the lives of animals

  • Animal care and animal careers

  • Responsible pet ownership
