Spring Break Mini Camp for Youth

March 21-25, 2022

What better way to spend spring break than with our shelter pets?

Our week-long camp for children grades 4th-8th introduces the kindness, care, empathy and fun that is needed to run the Oregon Humane Society! Come join us for a week of action-packed and animal filled experiences to highlight our amazing animals waiting for their forever homes. Kids will learn new skills in training and handling tips, animal socialization, baking treats and animal crafts. With guest speakers and animal related topics, this camp will open up a world of advocating for our furry and feathered friends.

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