All-Girls Camp Takes over Animal Allies Humane Society

During Winter Break, A Group of Eight Girls Have the Chance to Learn and Have Fun at the Local Shelter

DULUTH, Minn. – Even though it’s beginning to feel like spring across the Northland, Duluth School District students are enjoying winter break this week.

A group of eight girls, ages 10 to 14, are taking part in the first even all-girls camp at Animal Allies Humane Society in Duluth.

It’s a chance for the girls to engage in art projects, lend a paw around the shelter, and learn more about animals and responsibility while doing so.

The week has also included visits to the Great Lakes Aquarium and the Lake Superior Zoo.

“It’s a great opportunity for the girls to really learn and explore things just with each other, and to have fun making friendships with girls from other schools,” said Shawna Weaver, Humane Education Manager at Animal Allies.

The staff at Animal Allies is looking to host more camps this summer, including an art camp and more girls’ camps.

“We are working with a bunch of art project this week, so we’re going to do more of that this summer and have a couple different art camps. They have always been the first to fill up for us,” said Weaver.

A handful of college freshmen from St. Scholastica were also helping out Wednesday, taking part in their annual community day event.
