Camps

COVID-19 Update – Due to the current situation and the uncertainty that remains for the foreseeable future, we have decided to cancel our summer camps and workshops. As a public facing organization with clients in both our clinic and our shelter, we cannot confidently welcome groups into our building while also maintaining the safety protocols put forth by the CDC. We will miss the youthful energy around the shelter over the next few months, but we will look forward to the return of our in-person youth programming this fall. In the meantime, stay tuned to our social media pages for educational activities and virtual opportunities for little animal lovers.

*If you have already signed up for summer camps or workshops, full refunds will be issued this week. We will email you directly and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.


The Virginia Beach SPCA offers Spring Break and Summer day camps for children ages 6-12. These week-long camps offer a behind-the-scenes look at an animal shelter, guest speakers, animal inspired arts and crafts, field trips, critter time, and more. These camps are the perfect opportunity for young animal lovers to build compassion, make new friends, learn about careers in animal services, and spend time with a variety of critters.

The summer months also include VBSPCA workshop weeks, offering one-day workshops in a camp-like setting. Children can participate in one day of the workshop week or they can participate in multiple days. Our workshop weeks include our popular Vet for a Day Workshops, Kitten Around Workshop, and a new Bow-Wow Workshop. You can learn more about the workshops here.
