Every year, NHES hosts a Cool to Care Camp for children in grades 1 through 9.
Each session runs Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm. Our humane educators make learning fun with outdoor games, arts and crafts, service projects, and interaction with shelter pets! Campers will also enjoy guest speaker presentations from amazing animal professionals – including K9 teams, wildlife rehabilitators, and specially trained therapy dogs. Check out the curriculum for each age group in the table below. The cost per camper is $180 that includes a customized 2019 camp t-shirt. Camp FAQ & Camp Policies.
