Summer Camp

East Bay SPCA Animal Camp is the purr-fect fit for campers who are passionate about pets, want to make a difference for shelter animals, or just need a little experience before adding a furry friend to the family. Animal camp is both educational and fun! Campers will gain an appreciation for all living things through hands-on activities, animal interactions, pet-themed games, and take-home crafts.

Limited financial assistance is available for qualified applicants (Summer Camp Scholarship Applications are due on April 1st). Please contact us if you need an application in another language, or if you prefer to complete a hardcopy rather than online.
