Camp Good Dog for Kids is a fun and exciting learning experience for kids between the ages of 8 and 12 who love animals and want to make a positive difference in a shelter dog’s life! Campers are paired with a shelter dog and a volunteer camp counselor to learn the basics of dog training, pet care, and how animal shelters work. Last year’s guest speakers included PAWS Animal Wildlife Sanctuary, Greyhound Crossroads, Animal Control, among others!

Camp dates for the 2017 summer session are June 5th – 16th, with graduation Saturday, June 17th. Camp sessions are held Monday through Friday 8:30a to 11:30a at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter located at 2820 Airport Rd in Greenwood, SC.
