Kids & Teens
Humane education is defined as the teaching of the principles of justice, goodwill and humanity toward all life.
More than 13,000 youths benefit annually from our programs. Through school presentations, shelter tours, our popular day camps and our Junior Volunteer Clubs, they learn lessons in compassion, respect and responsibility—values that make a better world for animals and people.
Monday, July 1, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Before heading back to school, spend a day with us learning about all things horses—from hay to z! This one-day camp for kids ages 12–15 will be spent exploring horse anatomy, body language, markings and more. This class involves observation of our wonderful Harmony horses, but no interaction with the animals. Understanding horses not only leads to better care of horses, but results in more compassion and empathy for our animal friends.
*Due to preparation and staffing costs, all camp fees are non-refundable.
Cat Tails Story Time
Saturday, Aug. 25 & Saturday, Sept. 28, 3–3:45 p.m.
Designed for preschool-age children and their families, this story time will focus on cat “tails,” as well as age-appropriate information about cats. Programs are free and will take place at the Quebec Street shelter; no registration is required.
