Summer Leadership Camp is an advanced program and we recommend that campers have participated in previous HFS programs before registering. Through the lens of Humane Education, campers will have the opportunity to take a more intimate dive into our mission of inspiring compassion for all beings. Smaller groups and more responsibility mean a more in-depth look at life at a sanctuary and more up-close and personal interactions with our rescued residents. Campers will develop skills for self awareness and awareness of others, explore the inner lives and adaptations of rescued farm animals, consider their own compassionate lens on the world, and be challenged to think creatively about how they can make a difference in their communities.
Please Note: We have a new and improved registration process. After registering for programs, you will be able to login and create a parent portal. Here you can register for additional programs, make cancellations, or update payment preferences. With this system, your account will not be charged until the first day of the program that you are registered for. If you wish for your payment to be processed sooner, you may access your parent portal to pay the balance on your account.

Summer Program Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up: Early drop-off is available 8:00-8:30 am. Late pick-up is available 3:30-5:00 pm. The extended day camp fee is $50/week and can be added on to your camp registration.
