Acadiana Animal Aid is pleased to offer children ages 6-12 an opportunity to participate in its Annual Adventure Camp!
There are three sessions: June 15 – 18; July 13 – 16; August 3 – 6. Price is $125 per child. Please note that camp attendance will be limited to 24 participants for each session. Drop-off time is 8:45am-9:00am. Sessions begin promptly at 9:00am. Pick up time is 12:00pm
The Adventure Camp at Acadiana Animal Aid will provide fun while simultaneously: 1) teaching the importance of animal care and welfare, 2) instilling compassion for humans and animals, and 3) inspiring a life-long appreciation and respect for animals that will benefit the future of our local community.
During each session, camp attendees will be introduced to shelter dogs and cats and taught how to properly care for them, what to do when encountering a stray animal, what it means to ‘Adopt, don’t Shop’, as well as the importance of vaccinations and regular veterinarian visits. Our camp attendees will also get a close and personal view of running a shelter facility and understand how we are able to save animals from euthanasia via our transport program. Camp attendees will learn about animal welfare issues in our area such as overpopulation.
Alongside the educational aspect of the program, we will also have several fun, creative activities like arts and crafts planned for each day of the week. Activities include: homemade dog treats and chew toys, cement paw-print stepping stones, and various painting/drawing/coloring activities.
