Camp Kindness

2024 Camp Kindness Dates & Information

Camp Kindness is an educational camp designed for children ages 7-9, 10-12, and 13-15 interested in learning about animal welfare and becoming future pet owners. During our camp sessions, children learn about proper pet care, pet safety, pet interaction and how these topics relate to the Sacramento community. Some examples of camp activities include shelter pet socialization, dog body language lesson, crafting, and educational presentations from different Sacramento SPCA departments and outside organizations.
