Day Camp For Kids That Brings Smiles to Rescued Pets

By Devan McGuinness |

Summer Day Camp For Kids That Brings Smiles to Rescued PetsTalk about a super-creative day camp for kids!

Many of us spend a lot of time before summer arrives (or school break in the winter) finding the perfect camp to keep our kids engaged, entertained and learning while they are off school. There are so many options available from the general camps to ones that fit specific interests of the child.

Then, there is Pawsitively Pets camp, a day camp that is held by the Toronto Humane Society. Yes, a camp for kid — but also for all the rescued animals as well. It’s the first of it’s kind that I have ever heard of and I think it’s such a great idea!

According to Pawsitively Pets they are a “one-of-a-kind” camp geared to kids aged 5 to 16 years old and, “Pawsitively Pets was developed to enhance and expose children to the wonderful human/companion-animal bond. Pawsitively Pets Kids Camp is a unique camp experience designed for kids that have a love for pets and animals. Our specialized program works with children to interact with pets and the pet community to create a lifetime of memories.”

The campers are taught how to be responsible for dogs and other pets and provides them with the skill to provide compassion and love for the animals. The rescued animals in return are given the love and attention they so need and well, a better chance of being adopted.

The kids are taught important safety tips like how to approach a dog that you don’t know and how to gain the trust of an animal. They also work with the animals to teach them new ‘trick’ like how to roll over on command, how to shake a paw and sitting on command.

To see some smile-worthy pictures from the Pawsitively Pets camp head over to CBC . For more information about Pawsitively Pets camp, visit their website!
