SPCA camps: Summer fun with furry friends

BC SPCA is gearing up for summer camps.

Kids involved will participate in a range of educational and fun activities, including animal-themed games, skits, crafts, guest speakers and more.

The one-week camps run throughout July and August in Surrey at 6707 152 St. Camps run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and are open to children ages eight to 12.

“The highlight for many of the kids who take part in our camps is the time they spend every day interacting with, and learning about, small animals,” says BC SPCA humane education manager Paula Neuman. “They also spend time with very lovable dogs belonging to SPCA staff members.”

All dogs participating in the camps have been temperament tested by BC SPCA animal welfare professionals. In addition to learning about pet care, animal health and welfare, Neuman says the children will come away with a wealth of knowledge about farm animal welfare, wild animals, the environment and careers in the field of animal welfare.

Camp spaces fill up quickly, so kids must register early. Registration can be done online at www.spca.bc.ca or by phone at 604-599-7209, Monday to Friday.
