SPCA to hold summer camps

Parents who would like to see their children spend an “unforgettable” week learning about animals are invited to sign up for one of the BC SCPA’s summer camps.

The camps are being held throughout B.C. – including Surrey at 6706 152 St. – and allow participants to take part in a range of educational and fun activities, including animal-themed games, skits, crafts, guest speakers and more.

“The highlight for many of the kids who take part in our camps is the time they spend every day interacting with, and learning about, small animals such as cats, rats and other small, furry creatures,” BC SPCA humane education manager Paula Neuman said in a release. “They also spend time with very lovable dogs belonging to SPCA staff members.”

The one-week camps run throughout July and August, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for children ages eight to 12.

Registration is available online at www.spca.bc.ca or by calling 604-599-7209.
