Cat Depot’s Summer Critter Camp offers Animal Care Education to 7- to 12-year-old youngsters. Scholarship funds will give six children an incredible experience that they would not otherwise be able to afford. Please help make this summer extra special for six deserving children.
Critter Camp is back for 2013!
Three Critter Camp sessions will be held in late June and mid-July. Fun and interactive five-day camp sessions will be held at Cat Depot in the Education Center.
Camp highlights include special visits from other animal protection nonprofits, community members and Cat Depot volunteers, animal-themed crafts and activities, snacks, and quality hands-on time each camp day with adoptable cats and kittens.
If your children love cats, they’ll love Critter Camp!
