IndyHumane Summer Camps

IndyHumane’s Summer Camps give students ages 8-17 years the opportunity to give their time and love to the homeless animals at the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Campers learn the important role IndyHumane plays in our community while bonding with animals who need love and attention. 

During the summer camp sessions, students work together to complete shelter tasks such as socializing dogs and cats. Special projects are incorporated to make camp a great experience.

Goals of our summer camps are:

  • To give youth the opportunity to help companion animals in their community by spending their time assisting the staff at the Humane Society of Indianapolis.
  • To nurture a sense of compassion and respect for living beings through enriching activities and hands-on experiences that are rewarding for kids and animals alike!
