Summer Day Camps for Youth


Summer Camp 2022

Summer camp is right around the corner!

Oregon Humane Society’s summer camps are a wonderful way for campers to spend the day developing and strengthening their love, appreciation, and knowledge of animals. We love to bring animal and campers together because youth who learn to be kind and compassionate to animals grow into more compassionate adults, helping to create a more humane society.

This summer, campers will interact with companion animals, learn pet care basics, play games, learn basic training techniques, make animal-based crafts, bake treats and build a warm and welcoming camp community. It is our goal to increase campers’ understanding and awareness of the role that they can have as ambassadors for the animals.

An introduction to basic animal care plus animal-themed arts, crafts, games, an opportunity to learn and practice the basics of dog training,

Camp sessions take place here at the Oregon Humane Society. COVID-19 protocols and safety precautions will be put in place in order to keep everyone safe.
