Youth Camps

Young Animal Lovers Welcome

Summer Camps and School Break Camps Available

It’s time to get up close and personal with pets! We are proud to offer a whole lineup of animal camps throughout the year for kids and teens ages 6-17 who are interested in learning more about animals and animal careers. Animal camps teach kids how to train and care for animals, be responsible pet guardians, align their choices with their values and make our community a safer and more compassionate place for all animals. Campers will have hands-on learning opportunities with a variety of animals.

Per CDC guidelines, visitors entering AHS property, including those who are fully vaccinated, are required to wear masks to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.

Registration goes live in February, 2022.  Use the link below to subscribe to our email list.
