The Humane Society of Sarasota County’s Fur Fun Camps are great for children who love animals. Whether they attend our one- or two-day seasonal camps in the fall, winter, and spring or our week-long summer sessions, or all of the above, children are sure to have fun unleashing their animal side at HSSC.
Fur Fun Camps are designed for children ages 6-11 and held in the Education Center on HSSC’s campus. Campers interact with shelter pets and other animals, both domestic and exotic. In the past, we’ve had goats, chickens, pigs, horses, rabbits, llamas, camels, bearded dragons, snakes, and birds—just to name a few.
