Summer Camp at The Briggs Animal Adoption Center


Every year, NHES hosts a Cool to Care Camp for children in grades 1 through 9.

Each session runs Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm. Our humane educators make learning fun with outdoor games, arts and crafts, service projects, and interaction with shelter pets! Campers will also enjoy guest speaker presentations from amazing animal professionals – including K9 teams, wildlife rehabilitators, and specially trained therapy dogs. Check out the  curriculum for each age group in the table below. Each camp session is $165.00 per week. Camp FAQ & Camp Policies
