Attention! all kids who love animals and fun

Jul 02, 2018
Camp participants get hands-on training in the responsible care and treatment of animals.

Camden — P.A.W.S. Pals Summer Camp offers both! So many animals and so much fun that kids keep coming back for more.

P.A.W.S. PALS is a week-long half-day humane education camp, for eight- to twelve-year old's, designed to teach children about the responsible care and treatment of animals.

P.A.W.S. Pals is brought to you by P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center, the local community no-kill animal shelter located at 123 John St., in Camden. The mission of P.A.W.S. is to provide care for homeless dogs and cats until they can be placed in permanent, responsible homes, while promoting humane values in our community through outreach and educational programs.

So what does a typical day at P.A.W.S. Pals look like? The morning starts off with a discussion focused on a Humane Education topic and how kids can make a difference in the lives of animals. Next, there might be a guest speaker from an animal profession. Then comes animal time. That’s lots of hands-on fun with the P.A.W.S. dogs and cats. The morning culminates with a craft project.

Camp weeks take place on July 9 - 13; July 16 - 20; July 23 - 27; July 30 - Aug. 3; Aug. 6 - 10 and Aug. 13 - 17.

So if you have an animal-loving kid, who wants to have lots of fun this summer, P.A.W.S. Pals might be just the ticket.

You can register online on the P.A.W.S. website: For more information, contact Brandi Moore, director of programs, at

As always, P.A.W.S. is open Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. So plan to visit our adoptable cats and dogs today. P.A.W.S. is located at 123 John St., in Camden.
