Dog Days in the Desert Summer Camp
June 17 at 9:00 am - June 20 at 4:00 pm$275
Spend your summer with pets
The Dog Days in the Desert Summer Camp will give your child 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: classroom activities, creative and artistic exercises, hands-on animal care, great games, and character-building lessons.
Kids and pets get together at Dog Days in the Desert Summer Camp. Campers spend a minimum of 2 hours daily caring for different camp foster animals. These animals may include ball pythons, rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and dogs. Camp provides children with an in-depth, hands-on education about animal care and the human-animal bond.
