Registration is restricted to one week of camp per child so that we may serve the many children that want to participate. Due to the nature of our business, with constant exposure to animals and their allergens, our camp programs are not recommended for children/teens with known allergies. Because of staffing restrictions we may not be able to accommodate special individual needs. Additionally staff are not permitted to dispense of or administer medicine to camp participants. This is a recreational camp program. The Sonoma Humane Society is not a licensed child care provider.
