Youth Programs

If you're a kid and you love animals, then you've found the right spot! The Wisconsin Humane Society has a variety of purr-fect ways for kids of all ages to get involved.

***WHS has made some changes to our programs in response to COVID-19***

The health and safety of the young people who attend our programs is our top priority, and we have made some important changes to ensure everyone's safety, including:

  • Limiting enrollment for each camp maintain physical distancing
  • Limiting the number of people in the shelter building for other services
  • Asking families and staff to abide by a health policy and stay home if ill
  • Increasing cleaning and handwashing at camp
  • Moving as many of our camp activities outside as possible
  • Requiring all campers and staff to wear masks when inside
