Fur Fun Camps
The Humane Society of Sarasota County’s Fur Fun Camps are great for children who love animals. Whether they attend our one- or two-day seasonal camps in the fall, winter, and spring or our week-long summer sessions, or all of the above, children are sure to have fun unleashing their animal side at HSSC.
Fur Fun Camps are designed for children ages 6-11 and held in the Education Center on HSSC’s campus. Campers interact with shelter pets and other animals, both domestic and exotic. In the past, we’ve had goats, chickens, pigs, horses, rabbits, llamas, camels, bearded dragons, snakes, and birds—just to name a few.
Campers also listen to exciting speakers, get an inside look at the happenings in our facility, read to our shelter dogs, play games, and make animal-themed crafts.
Fur Fun Summer Camp Registration Fee: $200 per child per session. We offer a $15 discount for additional siblings. Registration includes an HSSC t-shirt and daily snack. Summer Camp is held in the Humane Society of Sarasota County's Education Center, located at 2331 15th Street, Sarasota, FL 34237. All proceeds from our Fur Fun Camps benefit the shelter pets here at HSSC!
Sponsor a Camper: Help deserving children attend camp by providing a one-week scholarship. All children receiving sponsorships are handpicked by their teachers, prinicpals, or guidance counselors. Without your assistance, their families could not afford to send them to summer camp. You are providing a very special gift! DONATE HERE
