Summer Camp

OHS campers develop and strengthen their love, appreciation, and knowledge of animals.

Summer Day Camps for Youth

Camp Registration Coming in February!

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.
