General information

Camp Kindness

The Sacramento SPCA is closely monitoring group event recommendations in response to COVID-19 to ensure the safety of our families, programs, and the community. Given the recent updates and with heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel Spring Camp Kindness for April 9th and April 10th.

As of now, Summer Camp Kindness will still take place June 15 – August 7, with registration opening in early May.

Designed to foster awareness about animals, Camp Kindness will include games, crafts, tours, guest speakers, animal-related education, professional demonstrations, veterinary observation, discussions, and plenty of fun!

Projects You Can Do
Community Service

Students and scout troops needing community service hours for school or badge projects are encouraged to help the Sacramento SPCA by completing one of our community service projects. Your hard work will make a difference in the lives of the animals in our care!

Hands-on, in-shelter volunteers must be 18 years old or older, apart from our Camp Counselor program. We are sorry, but we are unable to make exceptions to this policy. Please note that the Sacramento SPCA does not have a program for court-ordered community service at this time.
