The Reading Buddies Program has several sessions offered throughout the summer. Sign up for a session to read to dogs and cats at the Aurora Adopt a Pet Shelter, get a tour, learn some dog obedience tips and find out more about our wonderful animal world. Reading Buddies provides a relaxed and “pet-friendly” atmosphere, allowing campers to practice their reading skills. The animals benefit from socialization, which improves their chances of finding their forever home! Campers get a behind-the-scenes view of shelter operations and animal care through hands-on experience. Just don’t be surprised if your child wants to bring home a new four-legged friend!
Members: $10 Non-members: $15
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.
