Humane Society’s Furry Friends Kids Camp
The Humane Society of Jefferson County will host its Furry Friends Kids Camp Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19. This week long day camp will provide a fun-filled experience for children as they learn about kindness and compassion for the animals who share our world.

Camp runs each day from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. Registration is limited to 24 students and is open to children ages 8 to 12.
Campers will participate in animal related programs, games, crafts and activities, including a behind the scenes shelter tour and interacting with animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and domestic rats.
Some of this year’s presenters include Deputy Greg Jansen and his K9 officer Gader, Educator & Naturalist David Stokes, author and member of the group ‘Bailing out Benji’ Peggy Race and Jim Perry and his group of carting dogs.
