The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria is pleased to open registration for the Alexandria Animal Shelter Summer Camp. Each camp is one week long (Monday through Friday) from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. (*except Class #1 for rising 1st and 2nd graders) at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria, Virginia.

Classes will focus on inspiring compassion for all living things, promoting the welfare of all animals, and encouraging responsible pet ownership. Children will have opportunities for hands-on learning with animals, assist with promoting specific animals for adoption and learn from special workshops by our veterinarian, our animal control officers, wildlife rehabilitators and more!

In addition, AWLA will be offering an additional 'lunch bunch' from 12pm to 1pm for camp weeks 2 through 7, which allows campers to enjoy a packed lunch from home with their new camp friends in a relaxed shelter environment, under supervision with spontaneous entertainment or enrichment as needed (please note food will not be provided).

****Please note that you must provide an email address where we can send, in the next few weeks, additional forms for you to complete and return before the first day of camp. You must complete these forms for your child to attend Camp.  We will not provide refunds except in cases of serious emergencies.  If the class does not fill up, we may cancel the camp course.

Sarah is thrilled to join the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria as the Summer Camp Teacher. Combining her love of animals with her enthusiasm for teaching equals one exciting summer!   
Sarah is an alumni of the University of Missouri. She was a special education coordinator and teacher for two urban Chicagoland public schools prior to moving to the DC area. She currently works in Virginia as a teacher for a school for students with social and communication support needs. Sarah has a variety of experiences working with a range of needs and ages through volunteering in school, community, camps, and recreation settings. She is passionate about fostering kids’ innovative thinking to have fun while learning and growing.
She loves animals and has two five-year-old cats, Miranda and Zoey. In addition to always having pets as part of her family, she has been a foster parent to dogs and cats, a pet sitter, and a dog walker. 
She looks forward to using her various experiences along with campers’ interests and talents to discover all about the adoptable “residents” and resources of the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.
