Dog Days in the Desert Summer Camp
Description: Spend your summer break making memories with HSSA!
Kids and pets get together at Dog Days in the Desert Summer Camp.
These camps give children 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, including classroom activities; creative and artistic exercises; hands-on animal care; great games, and character-building lessons.
Campers spend a minimum of 2 hours daily caring for different camp foster animals, which may include ball pythons, rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, cats and dogs. Dog Days provides children with in-depth, hands-on education about animal care and the human-animal bond.
