December 27-29, 2021
Campers taking part in our December Holiday Vacation Camp will meet from 9 am to 3 pm and are welcome to register for one, two, or all three days! Children ages 7 to 12 will enjoy learning about the pets in the Humane Education classroom as well as the animals in the Adoption Center. There will be lots of hands-on time with the animals, as well as games, crafts, and activities – all with an animal theme!
With the addition of our new Community Meeting Room, we can safely welcome more children to our campus to learn about the animals by hosting two groups at the same time! Children ages 7-9 will be grouped together and children ages 10-12 will be grouped together. Both groups will spend time with the Humane Education classroom animals each day.
While each day of camp includes opportunities to interact with our classroom animals and learn about the different adoptable animals around our campus, we will be highlighting different animal-related themes each day! On Monday, we will have a special focus on farm animals, on Tuesday we will learn about different companion animals like dogs and cats, and on Wednesday we will spend time learning about different small animals, affectionately called pocket-pets!
We strive to provide a unique and memorable experience for our campers, and this is also a wonderful way to support the life-saving efforts of the NHSPCA while helping a young animal lover to learn about being a responsible pet owner.
**If there is inclement weather and the need to cancel during a purchased camp day, there will be a make-up day on Thursday, December 30.
Spacing is limited to twelve campers per group each day so be sure to register soon!
COST: $60 per day
In order to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols, masks are required for all participants when indoors (except for when eating). Shared surfaces will be sanitized regularly and physical distancing, and hand washing will be implemented throughout the day.
Spaces fill up quickly, so register early! It is not the NHSPCA’s policy to give refunds for cancellations. In the case of inclement weather, we will make all attempts to reschedule or provide a credit to use toward future programming. Once you have submitted the registration form, a member of our staff will connect to confirm your registration and provide additional information.
*We welcome campers of all backgrounds and ability levels. Please note, if your child requires 1:1 support from a trained adult while at school, it is the parent’s responsibility to make sure that a trained adult can attend camp with your child. It is also the parent’s responsibility to secure a background check for the attending adult prior to the start of camp. Without a cleared background check, the child and adult will not be able to participate.
Waiver: I recognize that in conjunction with my child’s attendance at the New Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NHSPCA), my child will be in contact with and may be allowed to hold and pet animals. I understand that despite all precautions made, there is a chance that my child may contract a disease or illness by handling the animals. I further understand that there is a chance that my child may sustain a scratch or bite while handling animals. I understand that the above is illustrative of the types of risks involved in participating in programs at the NHSPCA, but is in no way a complete list of possible risks. By checking the YES box when registering, I do hereby absolutely and unconditionally release and discharge the NHSPCA, including its employees, successors, assigns, directors, officers and agents from and against any and all claims, obligations and liabilities of any nature relating to or arising out of my child’s participation with the NHSPCA camp program. I certify that I am the registered child’s legal parent or legal guardian.
Photo Release: I authorize the NHSPCA to use photos of my child engaging in program activities for media purposes.
