Summer Programs

Summer Camp Fun

Delivered to Your Door

This year, summer camp is coming to YOU with Discover Camp at Home!

Each week, subscription boxes will bring the fun of camp to your child’s mailbox. These themed boxes arrive brimming with animal-related information as well as games, puzzles, crafts, and service projects that kids can complete to help the animals at HSSW! Campers will learn all about the world of HSSW from the comfort of their own home. In addition to the subscription box, each week will feature a virtual morning at camp (via Zoom) where campers meet shelter animals, explore the topic of the week, and play games!

All the fun of camp is waiting at your doorstep. Don't miss out!
