Welcome to the spcaLA's Friends for Life Camp™ information page. We are glad to see that you are interested in our 4th annual spring camp!
spcaLA's Friends for Life Spring Camp™ is a week long and is designed for 9-12 year olds. At camp, kids learn basic care and responsibility for pets, respect for animals, and the beginnings of dog training — all while having fun with friends! Campers will participate in animal-related crafts and activities, see dog training demos, and do obedience and agility training with shelter dogs.
There is also a wonderful opportunity for graduated campers! Anyone who is between the ages of 15-17 and has attended Friends for Life Camp™ in the past may apply to be a Camp Counselor in Training (CIT). If you are interested in learning more about this, please CLICK HERE.
