Santa Cruz SPCA Camps

We are so excited to invite students to our 1-year-old SPCA animal shelter to spend seven weeks in camp with us this year!  Students will learn about our shelter does for the animals in our care and for the community, they will meet many different types of animals from all over our community, and they will learn about care and advocacy for both our pets and our local wildlife.  Many of the learning pieces are taught through art, play and hands on experience.  This is the perfect experience for those looking to work with animals in the future, who just want to learn more about animals of all kinds and who want to spend time with other animal lovers like themselves!

  • Please only sign up for only one week of camp!  Our camps are somewhat repetitive and are meant for one-week registration only!
  • Also, please make sure that you are signing up students in the right week for their age group.  Anyone joining an alternate week than their age allows must receive approval from our Humane Education Coordinator, 831-566-3753.
