This camp has been so popular, we are offering two sessions – one in Aurora and one in Grand Island. This summer camp is geared towards learning about the care, nutrition and training of our canine friends. Guest presenters will be a variety of canine experts including a veterinarian and a certified groomer. Each day will include dog obedience and agility training sessions. Campers with well-socialized dogs that have proof of up-to-date vaccinations may bring them to camp for the training sessions. Campers who do not have a dog may work with dogs from the Aurora Adopt a Pet Program and the Central Nebraska Humane Society. A dog show will take place on Friday at 10:30am so the campers can show off what they have learned during the camp. Family and friends are invited to watch and enjoy.
Members: $75 Non-members: $100
Scholarships available based on financial need. If your student qualifies for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program at their school, they may be eligible to attend a summer camp free of charge due to support from our corporate sponsors.
