On Tuesday's Good Morning Arizona, Emilie Sinur of the AAWL brought along some critters kids might see at camp. "These are our animal ambassadors that we use for our kids' programs," she says.
Lizards, ferrets, rats and iguanas might make an appearance in the camps.
In the camps, kids will learn pet care basics, animal behavior and safety, and, of course, cuddle with the animals! Other activities include singing, dancing, and creating fun art projects, all inspired by crazy critters!
