Kids in all parts of B.C. can take part in a one-of-a-kind animal-themed online experience.

The camps will feature two live sessions a day and they will include games, activities, meeting animals, a shelter tour, guest speakers and presentations.

Saturday workshops will be held every month for 11- to 14-year-olds from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

School presentations are also available and will cover a variety of animal themes for grades Kindergarten to Grade 12.

The SPCA will provide information about an animal topic and inspire students come up with ideas to solve a problem in the form of a project – could be a poster, skit, report, display, diorama, speech etc. Teachers are also provided with activities and worksheets that students can do to reinforce the information presented.
