Stay tuned! Dates and registration for Camp SPCA 2018 will be available soon.
Our half-day camp features lessons on empathy, compassion for animals and helping animals in our community in a fun and friendly environment. Campers will learn about our shelters and the animals we care for through games and cool activities each day. All sessions are led by returning Bucks County educator, Karen Kemmerer.
We offer 5 weeks of Camp each summer, with sessions available at the Lahaska and Quakertown shelters. Camp is held from 9:00 AM to noon each weekday and includes a snack and t-shirt. Tuition is $150.00 for the week and, thanks to a very special gift from the Lambertville Elks Lodge 1070, scholarships are available for sessions at both locations.
Guided tours of both Bucks County SPCA animal care facilities are available for interested groups of all ages. Tours run 45 minutes to an hour long, including time for questions. In addition to touring the different animal areas, attendees learn about our organization and the animals we help. Review the guidelines below and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule tour. If your group has a specific topic that they want to learn about, please be sure to let us know.
- Space at our Lahaska facility is limited. We can accommodate groups of 10 – 12 maximum, including kids and adults. Multiple tour times can be scheduled for larger groups.
- We can accommodate larger groups at our Quakertown shelter.
- Tuesdays through Fridays between 12:00 PM and 5:00 PM
- Please allow a few weeks’ advanced notice since our schedule fills up quickly
Please also understand that we cannot guarantee direct interaction with animals during tours.
Classroom Presentations and School Assemblies
The Bucks County SPCA is happy to visit your classroom or school assembly to introduce participants to our work. This program will offer a glimpse into the life of animals at our shelters, from sign in to adoption. It is a great way to introduce kids and adults to the scope of our work on behalf of animals in our community and to learn how attendees can support our efforts.
