About the Camps

The Animal Adventure Summer Camps are Humane Education Programs for children from 8-12 years old. Campers will learn about and interact with different type of animals. All activities will encourage respect, responsibility, empathy and kindness to animals. Campers will learn about SICSA and homeless animals, learn about other animals, study veterinary science (with a veterinarian), examine x-rays, use microscopes and stethoscopes, participate in art activities and much, much more. All children will receive a camp SICSA t-shirt the first day of camp. All children will need to bring a sack lunch and a bottle of water to camp each day.

Animal Antics Camp will concentrate on many different type of animals including exotic, domestic and livestock animals.

Canines & Cats Caper Camp will concentrate primarily on dogs and cats. This camp will also have an option to view a spay/neuter surgery on a SICSA adoptable dog or cat.
