COMPASSION CAMP FOR KIDS
Pope Memorial SPCA Summer Camp program offers children ages 7 to 12 years the opportunity to develop a caring, compassionate and responsible awareness of pets. Week long camps offered are perfect for children who have a sincere interest in all animals, especially companion animals. Daily camp curriculum includes topics such as proper pet care and safe handling of pets, responsible pet ownership, grooming, training pets, and special guests from the animal care field. Time with shelter pets is on the schedule too! The camp program is held at the Pope Memorial SPCA in our Multi-Purpose Room. We do not currently have a sliding fee scale or offer any sibling discounts.
Spring Camp: April 27-May 1st
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and CDC recommendations for group gatherings we will not be hosting our Compassion Camp for Kids, April 27-May 1. While we are very disappointed to miss a fantastic week of camp, public safety is our top priority. For all who have registered a full refund has been sent to you.
Registration is Open for Summer Camp
Camp weeks are as follows:
Camp runs from 9am-4pm. Fee is $240.
Download and complete the Disclaimer and Physician Form required for your child to attend our camp program.
Please note: In order for your child to be fully registered and able to attend camp a physician form must be completed by your child’s primary care physician verifying that your child has had a complete physical exam within the last two years, is up to date on immunizations, and provides a doctor’s order for medication administration during camp hours. A printout from your child’s doctor with details of their last physical, immunizations, and a doctor’s signature showing your child cleared for all camp activities can replace the form. If you child has an inhaler or epi-pen we require a doctor’s note that the child is allowed to administer this medication on their own or complete instructions for camp counselor to administer with written permission from parent/guardian in which to do so. This can also be found on the physician form.
Cancellation Policy: A $25 administration fee will be assessed per camper for all cancellations. If the cancellation is more than 30 days prior to camp start date, a full refund (minus the administration fee) will be refunded. If less than two weeks a refund will only be given if your child’s camp spot can be filled. No refund will be given without a two weeks’ notice of cancellation.
We also offer a Junior Camp Counselor experience for children ages 13-17.
