Camp PawPrint

Kids and Animals – What a great Combination……

Summer is not too far away, and we at Flagler Humane Society are busy planning “Camp PawPrint”. More and more animal shelters are hosting successful summer camps where kids can make friends and learn compassion for animals at the same time.

Last year was our first year and we had a great time. This year will be even better. My partner, teacher Kate Sturman from Rymfire Elementary will be back this year with me! Kate and I have lots of activities planned. Kids learn about a different species of animals each day, from bottle feeding kittens to giving a hedgehog a bath.

We have some great guest speakers. We will tie dye shirts and have visits from cats, dogs, rabbits, turtles, snakes, bearded dragons and more. Kids learn how to care for animals at the shelter and what they can do to help. We will be inside doing crafts and outside for some activities getting exercise.

We will go on a field trip on the last day. Last year we went to Marineland. This year we will have a different field trip that will be awesome.

Dates are:
Monday, June 15 through Friday, June 19 for kids entering 3-5th grade

Monday, June 22 through Friday, June 26 for kids entering 6-8th grade.

If those dates fill up, we will open session two. Those dates will be:
Monday, July 6th through Friday, July 10 for kids entering 3-5th grade

Monday, July 13 through Friday, July 17th for kids entering 6-8th grade.

The hours will be from 9 am to 4 pm and it will be $175 for a week. You’ll get a summer camp shirt and a tie dye shirt. We supply two snacks a day, kids bring their lunches.

Plan now and reserve your spot.
