The Humane Society of Marion County, Florida

Humane Education Camp

What are Humane Education Camps?

We have Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring Camps during the Marion County Breaks. Just like our Doggone Good Reading Program, we educate our youth on compassion and community needs while having fun and socializing with animals.

What will my child do?

Each day, your child will learn two lessons on Humane Education and complete four to six crafts/toys to donate to our Shelter Animals. We even have special crafts for you to take home, too! We will also have Animal Playtime and guest speakers coming in with more animals. After Lunch, we will also show a movie!

What does the Humane Society Provide?

We provide Morning Snack, Lunch, and Afternoon Snack. We provide all items for the Activities and Crafts. The only thing you will need to bring will be a refillable water bottle and blanket (if you want) for the movie. If you have dietary restrictions, we will have tables available to store packed snacks and lunches.

How long does the camp last, and when are the drop-off times?

Camp is from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Your child can be dropped off at any time and picked up at any time. If you drop off before 8:00 AM and are not signed up for extended day, your child will then be signed up for extended day and there will be a $25 fee. If you pick up after 4:00 PM and are not signed up for extended day, your child will then be signed up for extended day and there will be a $25 fee. 
Our extended day hours are from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. Extended day is an additional $25. We will not accept drop-offs earlier than 7:30 AM. If you pick up after 5:30 PM, it will be $2/minute and you may be asked to not come back.
