Do you have a child that loves making crafts? Does your child love animals? Do you need a little time to work on that holiday shopping list? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should register your child for the Richmond SPCA Holiday Craft Camp! This brand new camp offers campers currently enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade the chance to make fun crafts while also learning about animals. Over the course of three Saturdays your child will create holiday-related crafts to take home, learn about the history of the Richmond SPCA, discuss the importance of pet care and even learn some basic dog training skills. Each Saturday session is unique and offers a different educational component and new crafts. The crafts and discussions will be catered to each age range so that everyone is sure to learn something new and have a good time. Additionally, this camp will free up some time for parents to work on their holiday shopping while the kids are busy having fun!
This camp is scheduled for Saturday, December 7, 14 and 21 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Robins Starr Humane Center. Each Saturday session is $25 per child or you can register your child for all three sessions for only $60. You can learn more about each session offered below.
