Time with Shelter Pets
While shelter pets are an important part of the Camp Humane experience, time with our adoptable pets will be limited and closely monitored for the safety of both our pets and our Campers. Our goal in camp is to teach responsibility and compassion toward all animals, and we will have many ways to reach this goal.
What does my Child Need to Bring?
Your child should bring a water bottle, jacket and comfortable closed-toe walking shoes with them each day. To ensure there are no mix-ups, please label everything with your child’s name. Each child needs to bring a sack lunch with them every day of Camp. We will provide a healthy snack for each camper. If your child has any dietary restrictions or allergies, please email WinterCamps@AnimalHumaneNM.org so that we may provide an appropriate snack.
Accommodations & Modifications
If your child has severe allergies, medical conditions or special needs, please get in touch with us at WinterCamps@AnimalHumaneNM.org so we may discuss your child and his or her needs so that we can best support them. Animal Humane is unable to administer medication.
We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding bullying, teasing or fighting with fellow campers, or harmful treatment of shelter pets. Acts of this nature are grounds for immediate dismissal from the camp session without a refund.
Cell Phones & Electronics
Campers may bring a cell phone to camp at the request of a parent or guardian. However, campers should expect to use this phone only to contact parents in case of an emergency or to contact a parent for pick-up at the end of a camp day. Calling, texting or playing games on cell phones during camp activities is not permitted. Other electronics such as games, music devices, tablets, etc., should be left at home. We are not responsible for any lost or damaged items, including cell phones.
Camp registration can be canceled up to 1 week in advance of the camp session for a full refund. Cancellations less than a week in advance will not be refunded. In the unlikely instance that Animal Humane must cancel a session of camp, we will provide a full refund of all registration fees. In the event of inclement weather, we will notify all parents and provide a rescheduled date. Animal Humane reserves the right to cancel camp sessions due to insufficient registration.
This Winter Adventure Camp session is limited to 15 participants. In the event of a session fills completely, please email your name, child's name & age, as well a contact phone number to WinterCamps@AnimalHumaneNM.org to be placed on a waiting list.
Camp staff will contact you directly if a spot becomes available.
