Join us for our first Virtual Critters 'N' Kids Summer Camp! 

Event Details

We pride ourselves on offering a four-day-long camp with mind-stimulating activities!

Our camp gives its campers an inside look into the shelter, while also teaching them the rewarding benefits of becoming an “Animal Ambassador” in the community. Kids this year will have the opportunity to create advertisements for our shelter while learning from two of El Paso's best marketing experts! They will also enjoy presentations from The El Paso Zoo, Franklin State Park, and a virtual field trip to the Butterfly Pavilion in Denver, Co. 

Critters 'N' Kids is for ages 6 to 14 and is divided into two age groups:

  • June 23rd through 26th ages 6-10
  • June 30th  through July 3rd  ages 10- 14

Scheduled Packet pickup will be on Monday, June 22nd and June 29th 

Sessions will run Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 to 11:30 am 

Registration will open May 30th and end June 26th.
