Youth Programs

Critter Camp


Nashville Humane Association and Mars Petcare with additional grant support from the Stackpole-Hall Foundation are excited to present the 11th annual summer “Critter Camp, with two week-long sessions in July devoted to lessons on animal safety, responsible pet ownership, pet overpopulation and careers with animals! Hands-on time with shelter dogs and cats “ supervised by professional educators and trained NHA volunteers “ is supplemented by interesting guest presentations, and interactive games and crafts. Lunch and snacks are provided each day and each child receives a t-shirt.

Space is limited for both weeks of this free camp, and campers must commit to all five days (9:30 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.), with reliable transportation to and from the shelter located at 213 Oceola Avenue. Preference will be given to children from limited-income families and first-time Critter Campers.
