Summer Camp
Does your child love animals? Do you want to give your child the opportunity to learn about kindness and respect for animals in a fun and educational way? Here at the NHSPCA your child will learn and have fun in an indoor and outdoor environment, get up close and personal with the animals, do service projects, crafts, games and much more! Due to the enormous popularity of the NHSPCA Summer Camp Program and limited number of openings available, a Lottery System will be used to determine placement for Summer Camp rather than a first come first serve basis. After extensive research of options, and consideration of feedback from parents, we have determined that a Lottery System will provide a registration system that is equitable for all.

Thank you for your interest in our Summer Camp program. All sessions for Summer Camp 2014 are currently full.

Why the Lottery System? PLEASE READ!

Due to the enormous popularity of the NHSPCA Summer Camp Program and limited number of openings available, a Lottery System will be used to determine placement for Summer Camp rather than a first come first serve basis. After extensive research of options and consideration of feedback from parents, we have determined that a Lottery System will provide a registration system that is equitable for all. Camp enrollment is limited to one week of camp per child.

Lottery Registration
Parents/guardians will be given until March 14th to apply. Applications can be submitted for inclusion in the lottery in the following ways:

  • By mail (must be postmarked no later than March 12th
  • In person to the Administration office during business hours (Monday-Friday 9:00AM to 4:00 PM)

Camp applications must be submitted with $15 non-refundable Application Fee per child in the form of check, cash or credit card number. Application Fee is not applicable to Camp Fee.

Applicants selected by the lottery process for camp will be notified VIA EMAIL by March 28th and full payment of Camp Fee is due no later than May 3rd. Camp Fee payments not received in full by the due date will result in forfeiture of placement in camp (no exceptions) and a Wait List applicant will be selected. Once payment is received, Parent/Guardian will be emailed confirmation of placement in camp. If the first choice session indicated on the application is full, we will move on to the second choice, etc. If all three choices listed on the application are full, the application will be put onto a Wait List.

Wait List

Campers not selected by the lottery process will be notified via mail by March 31st and will automatically be put on our Wait List. If a space opens, Wait List applications will be randomly selected and contacted. Parent/guardians will be given 7 days to accept their child's registration in camp from the Wait List and provide payment in full. Wait List registration payments not received within 7 days of parent/guardian acceptance will result in forfeiture of placement in camp and another Wait List applicant will be selected. Once payment is received, Parent/Guardian will be emailed confirmation of placement in camp and receipt for payment, along with details about the camp.
