WHAT CAN I EXPECT MY CHILD TO LEARN?
Our goal is to teach children about compassion and respect for the world around them. By giving kids a rewarding experience working with animals and learning about animal welfare, we will provide them with lessons to help them make responsible decisions regarding the animals and people in their lives.
From pets to local wildlife, we’ll cover it all! Your child will learn how to be safe around animals and work hands-on with ambassador dogs to learn training techniques. Experienced and enthusiastic staff, guest speakers and some critters will give your child a week of learning through activities, games and crafts.
WHERE DOES THE PROGRAM TAKE PLACE?
Camp will be held indoors and outdoors at our Leslie A. Malone shelter, located at 2080 S. Quebec St. in Denver.
HOW MUCH DOES THE CAREERS CAMP COST?
