Requirements

  • All camp participants must have an up to date anti tetanus vaccine.

  • Camp times start sharp at 9.30am so we would appreciate early arrival.

  • Camp finishes sharp at 4pm.

  • Suitable clothing for outdoor activities should be warn (no hoodies please). Remember to dress appropriately for the weather. Please refrain from wearing jewellery.

  • Unfortunately we cannot take on people with animal allergies.

  • Please notify us of any medical conditions or special requirements before applying.

  • Mobile phones may be brought but we would ask that people refrain from using them during course times.

  • Please bring a suitable pack lunch. No nut products please.

Please note as the DSPCA is a Working Animal Shelter some animals may not be available for handling on the week of camp. This camp is a mixture of classroom learning, classroom activities and outdoor activities some of which involve animals in the care of the DSPCA when available.

Course participants do not work in the shelter and do not clean, walk or exercise the animals. This camp is an Education camp with supervised animal handling opportunities.

While The DSPCA strives to make Camps enjoyable for all participants, satisfaction with a camp is subjective on the part of the child and the parent/guardian. Therefore, it is understood and agreed that The DSPCA cannot and does not guarantee or warrant any participants satisfaction with the camp they have chosen.

Once a Camp has started, there are no refunds, no exceptions. We do not offer refunds or make-up days if your child takes time off from camp, misses a day or a partial day, takes a family vacation, gets sick, or ANYTHING ELSE that requires time off from camp.
