HSSC's Teen Camp is a more grown-up version of Fur Fun Summer Camp. This three-day camp is perfect for teens ages 12-18, whether they love animals, are considering a career in animal welfare, need community service hours, or all of the above. Campers will learn all about animal sheltering, from the moment an animal enters HSSC until the day it is adopted into its "furever" home. They'll discover what it takes to be an animal advocate and how they can help both pets and the people who love them. Campers will study animal behavior, train dogs using positive training methods, learn about veterinary medicine, promote pets available for adoption, and more. Teens who attend all three days of camp will receive 21 community service hours.
Teen camp will be held at HSSC in our brand-new education and training center. Campers should bring a bagged lunch. Daily drinks and snacks will be provided. Safety and sanitation protocols will be in place. Face masks are optional. Fee: $200 per child; $15 discount for additional siblings. Pre-registration is required. Limit 20 campers per session.
