Critter Camp

Summer Critter Camp background

Summer Critter Camp

Unfortunately, our 2020 Summer Critter Camp has been CANCELLED.

On June 1, 2020 the Ontario Ministry of Health released their COVID-19 Guidelines for Summer Day Camps. Our staff have been carefully and diligently reviewing these guidelines. While we were confident that the Critter Camp Program would be able to meet all infection prevention and control practices, there is one guideline in particular that, due to the nature of our camp, we are unable to meet: “9. Do not plan activities with exposures to animals or pets.In light of this, the Guelph Humane Society has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Summer Critter Camp Program.

 

Details about our camps:

The Guelph Humane Society’s Summer Critter Camp happens in July and August! Each week from 9:00am-4:00pm, Monday to Friday campers will learn all about the Humane Society, proper animal care and how they can help! Children will have the opportunity to meet animals, make crafts and participate in animal themed activities! Each full week will feature a field trip, along with guest speakers!

The cost for this program is $283.00 (tax included) per full week and $226.00 for short weeks. 

Every day, campers need to bring a lunch and snacks, a full reusable water bottle, indoor and outdoor closed-toe shoes, outdoor clothing, sunscreen (non-spray only) and their own hand sanitizer and face mask, if possible. We are NOT a peanut-free facility.

Children should NOT bring cell phones, ipods, ipads, gaming devices or fidget devices with them to Camp.
