Summer Camp – Week 6

What an amazing summer it’s been! Week 6 has been jam-packed with educational and exciting activities! Campers were visited by some new and old friends who taught them about caring for different types of animals. They also learned about dog training and different breeds of cats!

An old furry friend, Hominie the guide dog, came for a visit to see all of the new campers this week. She was thrilled to teach them about guide dogs and how to approach them. Campers also learned about how important it is to have a guide dog for people who need them.

Two friends that have visited the campers before popped by to say hello! Morgan the dog and Chloe the cat. Their owners educated the campers on properly grooming cats and dogs. They also introduced Chloe by informing campers about different breeds of cats!

Campers also got a chance to do some crafts throughout the week – bookmarks, wooden clip animals, enrichment toys for our shelter animals and cardboard elephants!

Later on in the week, campers were visited by Positive Pups and learned more about the sport, Flyball! Droid and Hooch were two very excited dogs that came to demonstrate the sport with the help of the campers.

We’re very sad to see these great campers go, but we’re very excited for our last week at camp starting next Monday August 17th!

We hope to see these lovely campers next year!
