Week Two Camp Themes
Let’s Be Friends With Animals – Grades K-2 Dogs and cats are our best friends, but what does it mean for us to be friends to the animals? This week we will explore all the different ways that we interact with pets and how we can be even better friends, whether it’s showing them love in our own homes or helping to care for them in our community.
Caregivers in Training – Grades 3-5 What do you want to be when you grow up? A veterinarian? A dog trainer? A cat whisperer? This week we will explore a variety of jobs that help animals in our community from the experts right here at JHS. You’ll get to meet with professionals, learn their secrets and even watch a surgery or two!
Helping Hands & Happy Tails – Grades 6-8 Are you passionate about helping shelter pets find new families? Join our team as a junior adoption counselor as we focus on the importance of adopting a shelter pet. Your hands-on projects will include helping prepare pets for adoption, helping pets develop adoptable behaviors and promoting pets for adoption.
JHS recommends that parents use «rising» grades (example, a child who finished 2nd grade should register for grades 3-5 camp) however — you know your children best and we encourage you to follow parental instinct. We reserve the right to make a professional judgment and move a camper to a more appropriate age group after consulting with you.
