Students learn kindness, compassion, and responsible pet care through a blend of online and offline activities completed at home. Each week-long camp includes two daily sessions (10 am – 12 noon and 1-2 pm); $150 per child, per camp fee includes a take-home camp kit with a t-shirt and everything you’ll need to participate.
Some group activities and lessons will be conducted live, via Zoom, while others involve pre-recorded videos, worksheets, and activities for independent work.
