Our Humane Education programs teach kindness, compassion and empathy for animals, people and the environment.

We offer many unique, educational, and fun camp opportunities for kids that align with the school vacation schedule.  

At the NHSPCA, we provide care for animals with a wide variety of personalities, behavioral and medical needs. Although campers will see animals during their program, we cannot promise a certain amount of direct animal contact with animals in the adoption center. The only  animals that we can ensure the campers will spend time with each day, are the ambassador animals in our classroom.  

Health and Safety Information – At the NHSPCA, we believe in creating a safe and healthy space for our animals, staff, and guests. At this time, masks are NOT required while participating in Humane Education programs. However, we will continue to monitor Covid-19 trends in our area, and masking requirements may be updated at any time.

If you or someone in your group has symptoms of Covid-19 (including a fever, cough, sneezing, etc.), a known Covid-19 exposure, or you simply feel sick, we kindly ask that you do not enter our facility and notify us as soon as possible.
