Humane Education Clubs

With the information collected from surveys and guidance from the CDC, we have made the following changes to our summer programs in regards to Covid-19 and keeping our entire community healthy:

  • We have reduced our camp hours to mornings only. Our new camp hours are 8:30 am-12:00 pm. 
  • We have added new afternoon clubs for children 5-11 years old that offer shorter program times (1-3 pm).
  • We are hiring additional staff and maintaining smaller group cohorts.
  • Please note that Heartland Farm Sanctuary will continue to follow all state and local orders. We will update our policies in accordance with any new information that we receive. You can also view the CDC Website Camp Guidelines here.
