Virtual Summer Camps

We are thrilled to offer your child the opportunity to learn about animals and the world around them through our virtual camps this summer! 

There is no charge for camp, thanks to the generosity of the EFS Foundation and the support of several kind-hearted community members.

When registering your child for camp, donations are greatly appreciated, but not required.

Donations will help support animals in need at Anderson Animal Shelter. 

We can’t wait to learn together!
