On October 21 at our Victoria location, we will be offering a two-hour Service Saturday workshop from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for youth born 2002-2005. Participants will get to make something for the animals, do a group volunteer project and help socialize the shelter’s animal guests. The cost of this workshop is $20, with $5 off for BC SPCA Kids Club members with discount code.
If you have questions concerns regarding the online registration process, or would like to be added to a wait-list, please contact Jennifer Trushel at 604.709.4679.
Please note: Our programs are about educating kids about animals through fun, active and engaging activities. These are not animal camps where kids clean cages or work directly with the animals. Participants will get a shelter tour and some time with approved suitable animals (no shelter dogs). Whenever available, dogs that are owned by staff or volunteers and have passed a behaviour assessment will be introduced to participants.
BC SPCA summer camps will return in 2018, with registration opening in April.
