Pawsitively Pets encourages all children to explore their love of pets and animals. Working with animals is not only a great learning experience for children, it allows them to build confidence, self-esteem and a sense of compassion and enhances their imagination.
Pawsitively Pets Little Lambs Program for campers 4-5 years old will be offered at our Leaside location for the 2017 summer.
Please note - due to the changes by the Ministry of Education to the Ontario Early Years Act all campers must now be 4 years old to attend camp. Please ensure when registering your camper that they will already be 4 years old for the session they are registered for. This is not specific to Pawsitively Pets - this applies to all day camp programs that are not a licensed daycare centre.
There are two program sessions available for Little Lambs. Campers can sign up for one or both in whichever order they chose. Each session offers a uniquely different camp experience working with pets and animals. A 10% discount applies to campers who sign up for more than one session.
Pawsitively Pets allows children to explore their love of animals through a hands-on program that incorporates animals, creativity, games and arts in a fun, engaging age-appropriate programs. The Little Lambs camp program focuses on allowing children to explore a variety of animals through hands-on interaction and learning. The Little Lambs Program is designed for children 4 to 5 years old to attend independently for a full-day or half-day. Children should be comfortable attending a program without their parent or caregiver to register for this program and fully toilet trained. The program focuses on sensory awareness, tactile stimulation, refining motor skills and enhancing each child's imagination.
A 10% discount applies to campers who sign up for more than one session.
Campers will have the chance to spend the majority of their day working hands-on with all of the different types of animals that visit our program locations. Animals range from pocket pets, reptiles, bugs, zoo animals, exotic animals, birds and birds of prey. Each weekly program offers a unique experience with a different group of animals. Campers will spend the majority of their day interacting with more than 20 visiting animals (full-day program) each day in a hands-on format. All of our Little Lambs programming centres around animals and also includes animal crafts, animal cooking (pet treats etc) and animal education sessions where we take part in building bird houses, habitats, enrichment toys and many more exciting things for animals!
Camp Ratio for Little Lambs is 1 staff to 6 participants. The Little Lamb Program has 12 spots open for each session.

Pawsitively Pets Refund Policy:
Refunds for camps will be made if requested in writing, by fax or email and will be refunded in accordance with the schedule below. Credit can be obtained for the full amount of the refund to use towards another program if the guidelines are met, and the program date is within the same calendar year.
Refunds on credit card or in the form of a personal cheque are subject to a $25 administrative fee (per camp session/per child,) deducted from the total allowable refund.
Refunds in the form of personal cheque may take up to 4-6 weeks for processing. Refunds will be issued in the format they were originally paid.
Pawsitively Pets reserves the right to grant exceptions to the stated policy in situations including, but not limited to, illness and death in the immediate family.
No Refunds for Partial Camp Attendance or Illness:
We do not give refunds or credits when someone chooses to leave camp part way through, whether due to illness or any other reason. Virtually all of our expenses are incurred before the start of the camp week. Similarly, we cannot give refunds or credits to people who have registered for more than one session if they choose during their first session not to attend another session. (The exception to this is if we are able to fill the spot with someone on our waiting list.)
(Someone in your family is told they have 6 months to live, your house burns down, etc.)
By all means, contact us! We're not heartless. We may ask for some kind of documentation and explanation, and we'll be more flexible if we hear from you sooner rather than later. We'll consider all situations individually.

To receive a refund for extended care notice must be provided in writing 30 days before the beginning of your camp session.
