Would you like to be a camp sponsor?
We would like to offer scholarships to children of families who are not able to send them. One of the ways we can continue to do this is through camp sponsorship. Scholarships not only provide an opportunity for children who love animals, but also those that may not have had much interaction with them. Click here to find out more.


Scholarship Application
Do you have a child who loves animals, but financially you aren’t in a place where you can afford HAWS Kids ‘N Critters Day Camps?  We have a scholarship program funded through generous donors. 

Fill out our scholarship application and we will contact you within a week.

Winter 2015

This year HAWS is offering a one-day and two two-day sessions to allow for greater flexibility during the holiday season! Sign your child up for one day, or multiple days.

Ages are from 6 to 14 years.

Each day will give your camper an opportunity to spend time with many different types of animals. If you sign up for more than one day you can be assured that we’ll do different activities each day, so your child won’t do the same thing each day!

Camp runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day. 

For parents who need to drop their child off earlier, or pick up later we do offer extended care.  For a small fee you can drop your child off at 8:00am and/or pick your child up at 5:00pm.  During this time one of our counselors will supervise your child.

We will provide a mid-morning snack, although you should send you child with a bag lunch.

Registration Fees: 

Our one-day camp fee is $49.00.  Morning care from 8am-9am or Afternoon care from 4pm-5pm is $4.50. If you would like to have extended care for both morning and afternoon the cost is $9.00.

Our two-day camp fee is $98.00. Morning care from 8am-9am or Afternoon care from 4pm-5pm is $9.00. If you would like to have extended care for both morning and afternoon the cost is $18.00.

HAWS Members get a 12% discount on registration fees. 

Camp Dates Registrations are processed in the order they arrive.  Education staff are not here 7 days a week, and so if we fill we may not be able to immediately remove a date from our website.  If we fill and you have registered for that date you will be offered a refund or transfer to an available date.

What do they do at camp?

Kids ‘n Critters Day Camp focuses on animals and their care through activities, games, arts and crafts.

Not only will kids be learning about animals and their care, they will have the chance to use what they’ve learned in working with our animals at the shelter! Camp activities include walking dogs, socializing cats, interacting with guinea pigs, a snake, and any other type of animal that HAWS happens to have during the time camp is in session. (Possibilities include hamsters, rats, ferrets, chinchillas, reptiles, & birds.) Additionally campers will get a tour of HAWS, play games and activities designed to teach them about animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.

HAWS Thanks Our 2016 Kids ‘n Critters Camp Sponsors!
