Not Your Typical Children's Summer Camp
? If you ask a child what a typical day at summer
camp entails, among the favorites may include swimming,
hiking and boating activities. But what about interacting
with animals ranging from companion animals to an
owl and falcon?
Humane Society's Camp Critter is a one-day summer
camp for children ages 8 to 11 featuring a variety
of animal-related activities including training
dogs, socializing cats and learning about wildlife.
Twelve camp enrollees will also participate in crafts,
games, a shelter tour and even have the opportunity
to meet some of the animal guests at WHS. The camp
will be held for two days: July 21 and August 18
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wisconsin Humane Society.
