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. Held in our humane education classroom at our new adoption and community center, Unleashed Camp is a tail-wagging adventure for all ages.


School vacation and holiday camps offer local students in-shelter, hands-on programming during the December, February and April school vacation weeks as well as in-service days and school holidays. Divided by grade, campers K-5 and 6-8 have separate days during the vacation week, and age-appropriate curriculum and learning objectives.
