The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA camp programs promotes respect, kindness, and compassion for all living things. We offer fun and informative presentations about proper pet care, pet safety, how to stay safe around animals, owner responsibility, and animal knowledge of many kinds. Campers learn and have fun through periods of hands on socialization with small animals, games, activities, crafts, and contests.
