Idaho Humane Society has just introduced a new summer day camp for kids 15-21 with special needs at their shelter. This 4 day camp runs August 14th-17th from 9am-4:30pm. It is a great opportunity for kids to learn about responsibility and teamwork through games and activities while interacting with shelter animals. If you have any teens who may be interested in this opportunity it would be great if you could pass along the information. The cost of camp is $125 and includes a t-shirt.
To register click here to email Kelly Nagl or call (208) 377-1716 . She is the Education Coordinator and Idaho Humane Society and she'd love to provide more information.
