Unleashed Camps

Have an animal-loving kiddo in your family? Don’t miss sending them to our Unleashed Camps during school vacation weeks and summer break!

Both educational and fun, camp programming is designed to teach children age-appropriate animal welfare topics and curriculum. Daily activities include hands-on interactions with shelter animals, educational games, arts and crafts projects, guest speakers, and more. Camps are held in our humane education classroom at our adoption and community center.


We offer vacation camps during the December, February, and April school breaks, as well as one-day camps on school holidays.

Registration for these camps typically opens a month in advance and camps generally fill quickly.


Our annual summer camp is the cat’s meow! Each week is designed for specific grade levels with age-appropriate lessons, experiences, activities, and field trips for campers.


  • Each camp session (one week) costs $375 per child. Daily camp time runs 8:30am-4:30pm.
  • Each camp week will include two field trip days (usually Tuesday and Thursday).
  • To view weekly field trips and guest speakers, click here.
  • Campers will be transported in two ARLGP passenger vans driven by our camp staff for one field trip. The other field trip utilizes a passenger bus driven by a professional transportation company.
  • All camps take place in our in-shelter classroom and are led by two full-time staff members and camp volunteers/assistants.
  • Please choose your camp session based on the grade your child is entering in the fall of 2023, as daily lessons, field trips, and guest speakers are tailored to be appropriate for that age group.
  • Daily snacks (AM and PM) will be provided. Campers are required to bring their own lunch, water bottle, and any additional snacks they want.
  • Campers will have daily exposure to common allergens such as peanut butter, hay, and pet dander. If your camper has strong reactions to any of these, please reconsider enrolling them in our program.
