Helen Woodward Animal Center offering Summer Critter Camp


Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Summer Critter Camp offers classes for kids in preschool through eighth grade. Children experience a full week of hands-on animal interactions (with critters such as blue-tongue skinks, cats and dogs, sulcata tortoises, exotic birds, mini horses and more).

Along with the animal meet-and-greets, kids enjoy summer camp activities such as animal-themed games, songs and crafts. Camps can be taken for a week or for a single day and are offered at several age levels. This year’s camp theme is devoted to “Animal Heroes” and explores the special traits that give each creature its “superpower.” Kids then learn how they can be superheroes to animals too! Camp runs through Aug. 21.
