Every summer we had eager, younger siblings just wishing they could go to camp. By request, we added an introductory camp for the really little ones, ages 3 to 4. Lil' Critter Camp is designed for preschoolers (ages 3-4) who are ready to spend a couple hours at Pet World, with or without mom or dad. Parents are welcome to stay and participate, observe from a distance as much as desired, or use the time for other things, knowing their precious little ones are safe with us.

From 9-11am kids are introduced to pets, starting slowly with the easier pets and advancing throughout the week. They learn a few animal basics and safe handling techniques. Mostly, they just have fun playing with the animals!

NOTE for 7 year old children:
If your child is a very young 7 year old, fresh out of first grade, with a birthday not long before June, (or a first time Pet World camper) you might seriously consider the five day Critter Camp. If your child is an older 7 year old, soon to be 8, who has done a PW camp before or is adventurous and can easily do an all day camp with 8 year olds, you might consider the first week of Animal Camp, instead.


All Pet World camps are indoor & outdoor, rain or shine! Includes camp shirt, laundry, snacks, and FREE field trip transportation!

The Fine Print: Online registration forms are usually updated by March 1. Please check the year on the form before downloading or the price may be incorrect. Parents, please download, fill out, then email the completed and signed form at your earliest convenience. We call our programs "summer camps" for convenience but actually they are classified as instructional, topic/task specific classes under K.S.A. 65-501 which are exempt from licensing requirements (similar to a sports training camp or Vacation Bible School). Our programs are private and sometimes used for childcare, however, because they are less than five weeks in duration, they are not classified as daycare. Even though licensing is not required, our instructors and leaders are fully trained in animal husbandry, local nature, certified in rescue, first aid, and CPR, and we maintain an adult to child ratio of 1 adult to 6 kids. Enrollment is limited because we keep our groups very small.

Open Enrollment: Registration is usually 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. First time camp parents can drop registration off early in person, or returning camp parents can mail the form with a check for payment, or email it to Ande or Sherry and call with a credit card to pay over the phone, or we can send an online invoice. 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 15 until all camps are sold out (which happens every year by mid May (except 2020, of course).
