EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Kids in the borderland who are animal lovers have something to look forward to this summer.
The Humane Society of El Paso is welcoming back campers to the shelter as part of the Critters ‘n’ Kids summer camp. There will be two 3-day camps that will show kids what being an animal advocate is all about.
The shelter said campers will get hands-on experience and learn from El Paso experts which includes the Red T. Hawk from the El Paso International Airport, the Masters Gardners, the “Wolf Lady”, and Krazy Arrow Ranchette.
The number of available camper spots has been reduced to 25 kids per session to allow for social distancing.
