Three Days of Fun for Kids!
The Sheboygan County Humane Society hosts fun, educational, and unique day camps for kids each summer. Three separate sessions of 3 consecutive days, each session with a different theme, introduces youngsters aged 8 - 12 to a variety of animal-related topics. They learn through guest speakers, games, crafts, field trips, hands-on activities, and interaction with shelter and guest animals.
Animal Camp FAQ's
1. What are the next camp dates?
Camp Dates are as follows:
- Junior Vet Clinic: June 20-22

- Happy Pets at Home: July 25-27
Learn what our pets need from us to feel comfortable in their surroundings. Whether it's a cat, dog or even a guinea pig, help them be a happy and enjoyable pet for their lifetime.
- Shelter Life: August 8-10
See what it’s like for pets living the shelter life. Learn how SCHS cares for pets, finds adoptive families and provides support to their community. Campers will get to see what shelter volunteers and employees do to keep the pets happy and healthy.
