Camps

Idaho Humane Society Education Education is a crucial component of the Idaho Humane Society’s mission to advocate for the welfare and responsible care of animals, protect them from neglect and cruelty, and promote humane awareness and compassion. We strive to share the shelter’s mission and programs as well as teach younger generations about humane care for pets and safety around animals.

Fall & Winter Mini Camps

Mini camps are service-oriented, one-day camps offered to kids between the ages of 7 and 14. Campers spend the day completing hands-on projects and meeting shelter pets. Projects are paused only for lunch, while campers enjoy a pizza party. Due to the nature of these camps, camp hours also fulfill the Idaho Humane Society’s community service requirement for students.
