spcaLA’s Friends for Life Summer Camp™ is a week-long day camp program designed for 8-10 year olds (“Beagles”), 11-13 year olds (“Boxers”) and 14-17 year olds (“Counselors-in-Training”). At camp, kids learn about responsible pet care, animal protection, and positive reinforcement dog training — all while having fun with friends! Beagles (8–10) participate in animal-related games, activities and crafts. They also learn the basics of animal handling and dog training. Boxers (11–13) also participate in animal-related crafts and activities, see dog training demos, and learn obedience and agility training with shelter dogs. Counselors-in-Training (“CITs”) explore animal-related careers, participate in more advanced dog training, assist with the care of our shelter pets, and develop leadership skills as they guide younger campers through various camp activities.

Camp hours:
Monday through Friday, 9:00am–3:00pm.
Drop-off begins at 8:45am, pick-up is promptly at 3:00pm.
