Winter Break - Animal Care

The Pawsitively Pets Animal Care Camp is a specialized program that accepts approximately 10-15 campers over the Christmas Break. Children accepted into this program will learn all the key fundamentals of animal care and what it would be like to work in the animal care field one day.

This program is now available for younger campers over the Winter Christmas Break & March Break.  Over the Christmas Break we allow children as young as 9 years old to sign up for the program.  Over Christmas the program is open to children 9-11 years old.  Campers must be 9 years old as of March 31st, 2017 to attend this program.

The Animal Care program will allow children to be in charge of caring for the on-site animals as well as work hands on with a variety of other animals focusing on their care needs and ensuring that they are happy and healthy.  Please check out our daily schedule for more info.  *All Exotic Animals that visit our location for the camp program are from CAZA Certified Facilities. 

Christmas Break Camp is drop-off/pick-up only.  Extended care is available from 8am - 530pm.

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.) 

Extreme Circumstances:

(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.   

Busing or Extended Care Refunds:

To receive a refund for busing or extended care notice must be provided in writing 14 days before the beginning of your camp session.   

Winter Weather Conditions:

Camp will take place in all weather conditions - should camp need to be cancelled due to extreme weather - campers will be notified the morning of the program and offered a credit for that day.

Refund Guidelines:

Winter/Christmas Break Camp Fees:

Full refunds available with 30 days notice.
