Camp ARF

Camp ARF's award-winning themed camps offer a one-of-a-kind experience. Interactive games and activities, critter crafts, and the opportunity to meet new animal friends highlight our week-long camps. Led by experienced counselors, Camp ARF is committed to creating a safe and memorable experience for your camper.

Financial Aid Information: Camp ARF offers need based financial assistance. To be considered for a scholarship, please complete the application form

Please note before registering your camper:

  • Campers must be registered for their appropriate grade level. For summer camp, campers should be registered for the grade level they will be entering in the fall. During the school year, for one day or winter/spring break camps, campers should be registered for the grade that they are currently attending. 
  • Camp ARF is located on site at ARF, an animal shelter. Please review ARF's Allergy and Medical policies.
  • Please review ARF's Youth Programs Cancellation Policy.
  • Campers will have 1-2 animal interactions each day, with either Pet Hug Pack® therapy or shelter animals. Our primary focus is always the safety and comfort of both our campers and our animals. We will spend the rest of our time learning about animals through hands on activities, games, art projects, and more!
