Animal Education Day Camp 2013
Does your child love animals? Come join the fun this summer at DuPage County Animal Care and Control. DCACC Animal Education Day Camp is an exciting and fun-filled camp for any animal-lovin’ kids. Children learn about safety around animals, responsible pet ownership, and animal care. Kids will play animal themed games, do craft projects and have interaction time with DCACC adoption animals!
