PHOENIX -- Spring break is just a month away, and that means it’s time to make some plans to keep the kids busy and entertained.

If your child loves animals, we found the perfect camp for him or her at the Arizona Animal Welfare League.

The Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA (AAWL & SPCA) is offering spring, summer, and fall camps filled with animal interactions, crafts, games, and more. The animal-themed day camps offer fun, quality educational experiences along with superior safety standards and low camper-to-counselor ratios.

The day camps provide a ton of fun for campers of all ages. Caring, well-trained counselors help ensure an animal-filled, action-packed week of laughing and learning.

Week-long sessions for children ages 6-12 cover a range of topics focusing on animal care, veterinary medicine, responsible pet ownership and wildlife education.

Teens can take part in Camp Vet, where kids gain firsthand experience in the exciting world of veterinary science. Camp Vet is a hands-on class for kids ages 12-17 who have a serious interest in learning about careers in veterinary medicine. This career discovery program introduces campers to a wide variety of animals and the care that they require, while learning what it takes to become a veterinarian.
