Fur Fun Camps

The Humane Society of Sarasota County’s Fur Fun Camps are great for children who love animals. Whether they attend our periodic seasonal day 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.

Normally, camps are held on HSSC’s campus. This year, due to COVID-19, our 2020 Fur Fun Summer Camps will be completely virtual using a platform called Zoom. The platform is interactive and kid-friendly.

Instead of the traditional schedule of five days of camp, four hours each day, we've shortened sessions to just one hour each day. We've also divided the camps into two age groups: 6-8 and 9-11. All younger child camps will run 1-2pm, and older child camps 3-4pm. This allows us to tailor the content for different attention spans.

In both age brackets, campers will see and learn about shelter pets and other animals, both domestic and exotic. They'll also listen to exciting speakers, get an inside look at the happenings in our facility, and learn how to train a dog. All they'll need is an internet connection and a connected device. The camp facilitator, Miss Ginny, will provide instructions to access the Zoom platform, plus any other details.

There is a limit of 10 children per session, so don't wait to sign up your children. Each five-day session is just $25 per child. That's only $5 per day for a fun, furry camp your kids will love.

Please reach out to Ginny Armington at 941.955.4131 x114 with questions.
