At Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control we believe learning to be responsible pet guardians begins at a young age. Our day camps help kids explore the joys of animals through fun, interactive games and activities. Our camps promote humane attitudes toward animals and others.

We are closely monitoring the increase in recent COVID cases in our community. Additional safety precautions will be put in place to protect the campers and staff. More information regarding safety information will be released to parents closer to time and when we have a better picture of the current situation. If the camps need to be canceled due to safety concerns we will issue a full refund.
