Questions? Please check our Camp Handbook – Updated 03.19.18, for answers to frequently asked questions such as what activities are included, how is camp structured, drop off/pick up protocol, dress code, camp rules,  etc.


Do campers get to interact with animals?
Yes, campers interact with both cats and dogs while at camp. The level of interaction each day depends on factors that permit an appropriate pet to be available. In the event that an appropriate pet is not available for hands-on interaction on a given day, campers may spend time with the animals at JHS in other ways (for example, observing staff members training dogs, reading to dogs in front of their kennels, or passing out treats).


JHS Camp Registration Protocol:

Allergies: Camp is not recommended for children with allergies to pet dander or nuts. Camp is held on a campus that houses more than 200 dogs and cats. Dogs are given peanut butter daily and many treats contain nut allergens. For these reasons and the safety, health and well-being of your child, we do not recommend that children with these allergies attend camps at JHS. 

Ages: JHS recommends that parents use “rising” grades (example, a child who finished 2nd grade should register for grades 3-5 camp) however – you know your children best and we encourage you to follow parental instinct. We reserve the right to make a professional judgment and move a camper to a more appropriate age group after consulting with you.

Cancellation: Cancellations must be made at least two weeks prior to the camp start date and must be received in writing via email or fax to qualify for a 50% refund. A processing fee may occur for refunds.
