Carrington, age 9, from Mt. Vernon Elementary, won
a registration to AWLA's Summer Animal Camp
during our drawing contest at First Night Alexandria.  

Welcome to the world of animal sheltering, animal care, and local wildlife! For 2014, the AWLA once again offers summer camp for area youth to learn about the animals that live in our homes and our backyards. Campers will participate in a variety of animal-themed games, activities, and discussions.  Camp sessions will focus on:

  • Animal welfare and sheltering
  • Careers with animals
  • Local wildlife
  • Positive reinforcement training

And, of course, there will be plenty of hands-on interaction with a variety of different Animal Ambassadors at the shelter.

Rising 3rd through 8th grade students can register for sessions tailored for their age group and specific interest. Camp sessions run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and last for one week. 

For more information and a list of frequently asked questions, please view the Summer Camp FAQ.

Registration for the camp opens on Thursday, February 13, 2014 at noon.  You must register online: REGISTER HERE
