Please note that our Humane Education team will be fully engaged with our 9-week summer camp program and sadly will not be able to offer other programs from mid-June through the end of August. We have enjoyed re-opening our classroom to the public and sharing our love of animals with all the children and families who have spent time with us over the last several months. Please keep an eye out for the return of the rest of our children’s programs in the fall!

We offer many interesting, educational, and fun opportunities for kids to interact with animals and learn compassion and kindness for all living things. From afterschool clubs to camps and birthday parties, there is something for every child! 


Birthday Parties

Make it a day to remember! When you have a birthday party with us, you get to meet the animals, tour our Adoption Center, farm/barn areas, and/or our newly expanded campus, participate in animal-themed activities, and invite friends to share your child’s love for animals!
