SPCA to Offer New Art Camp
The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA is bringing together children, companion animals and the arts by offering a new three-week summer program for economically disadvantaged youths. The three one-week sessions are designed to foster empathy in children who are at a pivotal point in their lives for developing compassion and fostering tolerance, which boosts their emotional intelligence, one of the greatest predictors of academic and life success.
This project has two goals. Firstly, to provide a meaningful empathy-building camp experience for at-risk youth through the promotion and understanding of the pet/person bond and secondly, to revitalize the SPCA’s retired pet cemetery into a peaceful memorial garden providing a palliative space for the community to honor and remember their pets. This garden will be enjoyed by the thousands of people who visit the SPCA each year, as well as the hundreds of SPCA volunteers walking dogs on the SPCA’s quarter-mile dog walking path, which will wind its way by the garden.
Please contact Kaicee Robertson at (434) 964-3331 for more information or to enroll a child.
