Summer Camps

The Place for Animal Loving Kids



PAWS Atlanta PALS provides young animal lovers with behind-the-scenes, hands-on experience to learn all about what we do for our animals and pet owners in our Metro-Atlanta community. With a special look at shelter operations, safe animal interactions, and how to be an ambassador for 4-legged friends, this camp will teach your child empathy, caring and responsibility for all living creatures. This is the perfect camp for your young animal lover!

Camp days will include:

  • Lessons on humane education
  • Exploration of the human/animal relationship
  • Discussions of responsible pet care & ownership
  • Workshops with a veterinarian and/or animal experts
  • Team building projects
  • Shelter care & operations
  • Hands-on animal interactions
  • Lots of fun & more!

In order to provide the best experience for everyone, PAWS Atlanta summer camps are open exclusively to rising 3rd graders through rising 8th graders. We have two Certified School Teachers running the camps weekly and the maximum attendance for each week is 15 campers. If you know a kid who loves animals, please tell them about PAWS Atlanta PALS!
