The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) is offering a free Animal Camp to children ages 9-12 who live in East Palo Alto and surrounding areas starting July 3rd through July 7th. Camp will not take place on July 4th.
“For years we’ve held our Animal Camps at our shelter, but realized many children may not be able to make it to our shelter every day, so we have taken the camp on the road to the East Palo Alto area,” said PHS/SPCA Communications Manager Buffy Martin Tarbox.
Animal Camp is an opportunity for youth to learn more about animal welfare, interact with animals and have fun making pet toys and other crafts. The camp will be held at Willow Oaks School, 620 Willow Road, Menlo Park. Enrollment is free and open to youth ages 9-12 years old.
“Our camps are designed to not only be educational, but fun too,” according to Martin Tarbox. “We want to be able to provide attention to each camper, so we limit our camp to only twenty children.”
Animal Camp runs from 9:00 am 2:30 pm. Each camper will need to bring lunch, but snacks and drinks will be provided.
Where: Willow Oaks School, 620 Willow Road, Menlo Park
