Kids love animals and it’s evident by the large numbers expressing interest in being veterinarians. This camp is built in partnership with Greenville Technical College and Animal Care staff, to give kids a “birds-eye” view of the fast paced world of veterinary medicine. Kids will learn about the importance of preventative medicine, meet some of our vets and medical technician staff, and have fun with crafts and projects related to veterinary care. Campers will have a great time building friendships with other animal loving campers and getting to know the awesome pets at Animal Care. Camp curriculums are based on Greenville County Schools State Standards but the kids have so much fun, they don’t realize they are learning!

Young kids love animals too and we did not want to leave them out! We have created a camp to nurture compassion by developing a respect for animals. Kids will learn pet safety and general responsible pet care. They will play games, enjoy crafts and maybe even receive an "adoptable pet" of their own (of the stuffed variety) all to learn about adoptable pets and what it takes to be a pet’s human.

Shelter animals rock, and we want the world to know it! Art is a great way to raise awareness and funds for the animals that need it the most, so we have partnered with the Travelers Rest Artists Alliance to create a fun-filled, animal interactive camp for kids. Each day will feature an art project for kids at all levels of artistic talent plus lessons about responsible pet care. At the end of the week, campers will be able to present their work at a special showing of their camp creations.

Vet Camp 1 has been so popular; requests kept coming for an extended version… so here it is! We have created a camp that picks up where Vet Camp 1 leaves off with additional programs on the special medical needs of dogs and cats. While we recommend that campers attend Vet Camp 1 first, we can accommodate campers that have date restrictions. We are appreciative of our partnership with Greenville Technical College, Animal Science Department for their help in developing this interesting and fun camp!


*Because of food related allergies, we are asking that children bring a bag lunch and drink. We will provide water for the kids!

Each camp will have a 5 camper minimum. If not met, all monies collected for that camp will be refunded.

To get involved as a Camp Counselor (must be age 16+), enroll your child, or if you have any questions, please contact Paula Church at: 467.3986 or
