Bored kids? Consider CAHS summer camp


LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Summer break is here and the kids are out of school. How long until the boredom sets in?

For children who love pets or would like to learn more about the animal kingdom, Capital Area Humane Society’s summer camps are worth looking into.

Camps run for five days and are open to ages 4 – 16, depending on the theme and the week.

For younger children, they’ll learn about the animal kingdom through games, art, activities and special visitors. They’ll also get to spend some hands-on time with CAHS animals.

Children 12 – 16 can attend a K9 training workshop. They’ll work with CAHS animals to practice positive reinforcement training techniques, obedience, tricks and agility.

A pre-veterinary workshop is also available for children ages 13-16. Teens will work with local veterinarians, developing skills that will help them in a future career with animals.

There’s even a camp for young artists ages 10-14, called Bark in the Arts Camp. Children will have the opportunity to use CAHS pets as an inspiration to develop their own unique works of art.
