Teen Buddies

Each year we look for teens who love kids and animals to help out with our Pet Explorers Summer Camps!

Teen Buddies will play an important role in helping camp counselors and they will be the campers' best friend for the week of camp! Teen Buddies WILL NOT directly handle animals. During the application process teens can choose which week(s) they'd like to help with. Following the application process, there will be an interview and required orientation for all Teen Buddies in the program. The application window closes May 18.

Registration to be a Teen Buddy is closed for the 2018 season. Keep an eye out for next year's Teen Buddies registration!
