COVID 19 may have given us “A Whole New World” but campers at Northshore Humane Society’s summer camp will experience the same exciting and educational animal-related activities they have come to expect at this year’s “A Whole New World” NHS Summer Camp!
The no-kill shelter in Covington, LA invites children ages six to thirteen to spend a week celebrating companion animals as they engage in fun interactive games and activities; meet animal experts and ambassadors; and put their compassion into action through service projects that benefit the shelter’s homeless animals. Children will symbolically adopt a shelter pet and be given an opportunity to interact with the rescued dogs and cats at the rescue. NHS summer camp programs foster a sense of responsibility and respect for animals through inquiry and experienced-based learning. More info can be found below:
Activities will include helping the rescued pets here at our facility as well as learning the importance of pet care and advocacy. A variety of animal-related guest speakers attend each week including St. Tammany Parish Canine Unit, Love on a Leash, animal control officers, veterinarians and many more!
Camp weeks run from the end of May through the end of July. Camp is Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Dropoff begins at 8:30 am. One week of camp is $250 per child. Lunch and snack are provided by parents. Before care (7:30 am to 9:00 am) and after care (4:00 pm to 5:30 pm) are available for an additional charge. T-shirts are also available for purchase through the registration page.
And remember, as a non-profit organization that does not receive any taxpayer funding, all proceeds from this furr-filled camp have a direct, positive impact on the care of homeless animals in our community! Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to another great summer.
