Campers are immersed in animal-themed activities and are challenged, in fun and engaging ways, to learn about responsible animal care, discover fascinating new animal facts and develop positive, respectful relationships between people, animals and nature. They leave feeling inspired to be ambassadors for animals in their community.

Activities range from active games, both indoors and outdoors, to quiet hands-on projects and include crafts, guest speakers and time with animals. All activities have been designed by the BC SPCA to incorporate positive animal welfare themes.

We do our best to provide some hands on time with animals throughout the week though we know kids always want more. Sometimes, animal time is limited because we must be cognizant of the stress levels and health of the animals and that the shelter is a working adoption facility. When possible we do bring shelter-approved animals into the education space and allow campers to interact with them in small numbers. We also take the campers on a shelter tour to introduce them to the animals and share the stories of how the animals came into our care.
