BEND, Oregon - The Humane Society of Central Oregon’s Summer Camp Furry Friends is for children who love animals. Two camps, July 24-28 and August 7-11. will offer third through seventh grade students a camp designed for their age and interests.
This is the purr-fect opportunity for children who want hands on experience while learning about different types of animals. The program is designed to build confidence, teach responsibility, inspire empathy and increase their knowledge about animals.
During camp, participants will work together to promote animals for adoption, and will graduate from camp with a newfound appreciation for what it takes to have and care for furry friends.
Camp Furry Friend participants will learn from experts in the field on animal control, grooming, Police K9 dogs, horses, veterinary care and dog training. They will learn about pet safety, animal body language and enjoy animal related crafts and more.
