Summer Camp

Campers will learn a ton about the needs of animals with paws-on experience to boot! At Humane Society Silicon Valley’s (HSSV) summer camp, kids in third to eighth grade will have a well-rounded experience in animal learning.

Camp is full for the 2019 summer season. We do have a small number of needs based scholarship spots available. Please refer to the Blueberry Scholarship information below. Please email education@hssv.org to get on your preferred wait list.

Third –Sixth Grade Camp Activities

Campers will learn practical dog training tips, play therapy techniques, meet wild animals, hang out with pocket pets, and bring home arts and crafts to remember their experience. The best part? They’ll have lots of time to play and cuddle with the animals!

Seventh –Eighth Grade Camp Activities

Our middle-school students will get a full learning experience focusing on animal interaction and community service. These sessions are for campers who are ready to take on more responsibility and leadership in their relationship with animals.
