Humane Education Youth Programs

Proud to be voted the Best Summer Camp in Sonoma County by the Press Democrat "Best of Sonoma County" Readers' Choice 2023

At the Humane Society of Sonoma County we offer a variety of exciting youth programs that not only educate children and teens about compassion, responsibility, respect, animal related careers, and safety and care of animals, but also foster a spirit of cooperative team building, a commitment to community and the human animal bond.

Each program is designed with fun, age appropriate lessons and activities that promote critical thinking, teamwork, patience and kindness towards all living things.
