2013 Camp Ruffin’ It - Applications now being accepted for June and July camps!
“Camp Ruffin' It” is a day camp for 8 to 12 year olds who love animals! The camp will provide ample opportunity for each camper to learn more about animals in general, responsible care, the work of an animal shelter, and the handling and training of companion animals. This experience will include both hands on activities with shelter animals, as well as demonstrations and educational sessions with experts in obedience and agility training, grooming and bathing, cat handling, pet safety, vet care and much more.
- Campers will participate on a 3 person team, led by an adult counselor, with each team caring for their assigned Shelter Team Dog. The Campers will care for and work with the dog throughout the week to prepare them for adoption and life in a home.
- Enrollment will be limited based on availability of adult counselors but usually we have room for 21 to 24 Campers. But in keep in mind SPACE IS LIMITED and so register early!
