Camp CompassionWant to get your kids off the couch and into camp during the summer? Your children will love learning about the joy pets bring us during our summer, service-learning based Camp Compassion — Where CHARACTER COUNTS!   Compassionate campers, ages 8 to 12, dig right in by selecting shelter buddies for whom they dedicate all of their efforts! The goal? A forever home, of course!   This year’s camp will chronicle the shelter journey experienced by our animals. Campers will first discuss how and why animals arrive at our shelter and then learn about other potential stops during an animal’s time with us, including our life-saving Second Chance Animal Hospital, behavior team, adoption centers and more.   Camp sessions are previewed in June and repeated in July. This way, campers can attend both weeks in either month, or mix and match by attending one session in one month and the other section in another. Because our framework is flexible and fluid, students can attend one day, one week or both weeks and still feel GREAT about their experience!   Registration is $50 for a single day, a discounted rate of $135 for the three-day-week or a further discounted $250 for the full six-day, two-week session. All camp sessions run from 12:30-5:00 p.m. at our Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. Graduation is held at 4:45 p.m. on the Thursday afternoon of each session.   June Session I - Tuesday, June 11 - Thursday, June 13 June Session II - Tuesday, June 25 - Thursday, June 27 July Session I (repeated) - Tuesday, July 9 -  Thursday, July 11 July Session II (repeated) - Tuesday, July 23 -  Thursday, July 25   Register Now!   Camp Compassion 2013 – A Shelter Journey - Ages 8-12 Humane Ed-Visor Leadership Intensives for Teens   For more questions, email or call (602) 997-7586 x1015.
