Camp Kindness

Camp Kindness at the Sacramento SPCA is a fun-filled way for kids to learn more about companion animals. Designed to foster awareness about animals, Camp Kindness can include games, crafts, tours, guest speakers, animal-related education, professional demonstrations, veterinary observation, discussions, and plenty of fun.

Sessions are held three times a year:

1. Spring session April 1-2, 2015
2. Summer session June and July 2015
3. Winter session during the winter holiday recess

Financial assistance is available for children of low-income families through the Bobbie Wortell Education Program. Detailed information is included with the application for each session.
