BC SPCA offers free summer camp for kids impacted by wildfires

July 21, 2021

The BC SPCA Humane Education team wants to make a tough summer a little bit better for families affected by the wildfires burning across the province. What makes everything better? Animals!

For those children who are being impacted by evacuations and alerts in their home communities, the BC SPCA is offering free enrollment in their virtual summer program, Camp@Home. Campers can sign on from anywhere in the province and enjoy the virtual camp with experienced leaders, lots of guest animals and other happy campers.

“We know animals make life better,” says Kamloops Humane educator Deirdre Campbell. “We can’t bring the animals to everyone in person but we can take campers on a virtual field trip to a farm, or make an animal craft with them, or play some games that help them learn more about their pets. We really want kids to have a fun camp experience and just be kids for a while.”

BC SPCA Camp@Home is five days of online sessions packed with games, crafts, expert guests and many animal visitors, all set on a secure platform where campers can learn and have fun safely. Interested families need only reach out to camp@spca.bc.ca with the header “Wildfire Camp.” For more information on our program, visit www.spca.bc.ca/camp. The camp season runs straight through to August 27.
