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, teach younger generations about humane care for pets, and safety around animals.

Our Humane Education camps take place at our Bird Campus located at 1300 S Bird Street, Boise, Idaho 83709.
Year-Round Break Camps
Break camps run two days and are project intensive. Snacks are included but campers will need to pack a lunch. Campers will learn about the shelter, partake in service projects, create enrichment for our shelter animals, and have hands-on learning opportunities.
