Humane Society offering scholarship to summer camp | Pets
(WMC-TV) – The Humane Society is hosting a special camp this summer to teach kids how to speak up for animals.
“At the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County, we believe that you are never too young to make a difference,” said Kerry Sneed, the group’s community outreach and humane education manager. “Our Pet Cadets Summer Camp will be an excellent opportunity for children to learn how to help animals while having fun and making friends at the same time.”
The weeklong camp will take place at the Humane Society’s facility at 935 Farm Rd. The camp will be offered twice this summer. The first session runs from June 25 to 29. The second session runs from July 16 to 20. Camp begins at 8 a.m. and ends at noon each day.
The camp costs $200 and includes a t-shirt and a daily snack and drink.
However, the Humane Society is offering one scholarship to the second session.
Children may apply for the scholarship by answering this question:
"How can I stand up for animals?" in drawing, poem or essay form and uploading it to the organization’s Facebook page. It may be uploaded as a photo or simply copied and pasted into a post. The deadline for entries is Friday, May 25, and the winner will be announced on Friday, June 1.
Kids between 7 and 12 are eligible to attend the Pet Cadets Summer Camp.
You can also call 901-937-3900 to register.
