This fall at our Victoria location, we will be offering two Service Saturday workshops from 10:00 a.m. – noon 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.

      • Saturday, November 18: Dog focus
      • Saturday, December 2: Cat focus

Sign up is available individually ($20), or save money by registering for all three ($50).

      • Saturday, November 18: Small animals
      • Saturday, November 25: Cats

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.

Summer Camps

BC SPCA summer camps will return in 2018, with registration opening in April.
