Pet World Lawrence

Summer Camps

Nature Camps for kids ages 3 through 10!
Pet World summer camps offer kids the opportunity to interact with other animal loving kids, learn about pet animals at Pet World and spend lots of time outside navigating trails and creeks while learning about wild animals and our enviroment!

Lil' Critter Camp for ages 3-4 and Critter Camp for ages 5-7, Animal Camp for ages 7-9, & Wilderness Camp for ages 8-10 (W.C. is only for returning Animal Campers)

Open Enrollment for all summer camps starts on April 15 at 10am. Spots are limited and fill up fast!
Early registration is available March 15 - April 14 for an extra fee. Please see registration form for details.

The Fine PrintOnline registration forms are usually updated by March 1. Please check the year on the form before downloading or the price may be incorrect. Online registration is not an option, sorry. Parents, please download, print, then bring in the completed, signed form on April 15 or sooner.
Open Enrollment
Registration is ALWAYS handled in person, first come, first served, beginning when the store opens on APRIL 15 (tax day). AFTER the forms are processed in person, we'll begin accepting and processing mailed in and emailed registrations that are prepaid via check or called in with credit card (that did not include the early registration fee). Remember, parents who are signing up in person will be processed first and, yes, there is usually a line to get in before we open and we often sell out some camps by noon. If only there were more weeks in June!
Early Enrollment
It's possible to pay an additional, early registration fee and register beginning March 15. Early, prepaid registrations are processed in the order received as long as they are accompanied by the early fee. Parents can drop registration off early, mail the form with a check for payment, or email it and call with a credit card. Forms submitted with returned checks will be removed from registration until the bad check and fees are paid then added back to enrollment as space allows (provided spots are still available). The numbers of available spots are updated every day from March 1 until all camps are sold out (which happens every year by mid May.)

"Best camp ever! Both of my kids love playing with and learning about the animals. The staff is fantastic! They're devoted to making this camp fun, safe and so memorable for each kid. My oldest daughter is so sad that she is too old for Animal Camp and hopes to work for Pet World and at the camps someday!"
- Monica Proctor-Markway

"My 9 y/o son LOVES all things summer, but, by far, the thing he looks forward to the most is Animal Camp. It's so important to BOTH my boys that we plan our family vacation around it! Not only do they learn about animals, they learn about teamwork, environment, and having fun! The most important thing to me, as a Mom, is keeping my boys active and Pet World camps have done it! The hikes and outdoor activities really keep my wild boys interested. It is worth every penny and we will be Pet World campers for life!"
-Raegann Berger


"Love this camp and the staff! They truly care about the campers and the animals! I've never seen a better run camp ever!"
