Camp Happy Tails introduces kids to the wonders and wows of the animal kingdom while learning compassion and respect for the world around them.
Our hands-on educational program allows kids to explore behind the scenes at the Potter League and unleashes a love for making a difference in animals’ lives.
By giving kids a rewarding experience working with animals and learning about animal welfare, we provide them with lessons to help them make responsible decisions regarding animals and people in their lives.
Cats and dogs have already stolen our hearts, but what about other little friends? Let’s practice acting compassionately towards all animals and meet some furry friends looking for homes. Campers will create toys for the shelter animals, design posters to aid in adoptions, and take part in numerous other crafts throughout this memorable week!
Has your child ever thought about being a veterinarian? Let’s spend the week learning the fundamentals of keeping animals healthy. We will practice animal first aid so you can be ready to assist your pet in the event of an emergency. Discover what it takes to be a vet and ask the Potter League’s own veterinarians questions about animal care and what it’s like to have a career helping animals.
Celebrate the wonderful relationships we have with our furry friends! Campers will learn the basics of pet health and behavior and see how understanding these characteristics can help our pets live happier lives. What games and activities can we share with animals that they enjoy, too?
Our pets depend on us to give them everything they need to have happy and healthy lives. Learn basic care for animals (and pet owners!) through food, exercise, and training. We will make toys and treats for our shelter animals, discover games we can play with our pets, and so much more.
Alongside a Potter League vet, we will explore the path of a veterinary career. Learn how vets care for our pets (and other animals!) and what it takes to keep pets feeling amazing and healthy. Learn and practice animal first aid so you can be ready to assist your pet in the event of an emergency.
This camp will teach the importance of advocating for our animal friends. We will learn about empathy, compassion, and the beautiful relationships we can form alongside our pets. Campers will find out what it takes to become a service animal and help our shelter animals find loving homes. What else will we do to speak up?
Fees include all materials, activities, lessons, and additional COVID-19 cleaning and safety measures taken. Campers will have a blast each week with animal interactions, games, crafts, & guest speakers! Lunch is not provided. Campers must bring their own non-microwaveable and nonperishable lunch and water bottle.
Please Note: Some of the animals in our care are provided daily enrichment that includes peanut butter. We cannot ensure that campers will not come in contact with surfaces that have trace amounts. For this reason, we do not recommend that children with severe peanut allergies attend camp.
