Fun Summer Adventure Camps for Kids!
Do you LOVE animals? Would you like to have fun learning lots of fantastic facts about our animal friends? Each summer, the Humane Society of Missouri offers fun and exciting day camps for kids ages 6-14. The Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Adventures programs are three-hour “animal encounters” where you'll learn about your favorite finned, furry or feathered friends and make a great keepsake to take home. Check out the cool classes we had in the summer of 2013, and keep warm this winter thinking about all the fun you'll have with animals once school is out for the summer! Check back with us in the spring of 2014 to see what exciting Animal Adventures await you next summer!
