Kids N' Kritters

RSPCA ACT will be running a series of fun, interactive education sessions over the school holidays for youngsters who are interested in learning more about animals. These holidays we have two sessions to choose from. See below for details, class dates and times, and how to book.

Junior Shelter Staff
We will learn about what duties are involved in working with animals and participate in these duties. Of course, there is some cleaning involved!
Cost: $60
Duration: 2 hours

Crafty Kritters
We will do craft activities which will be beneficial to the shelter animals, including making kitten toys with which they will be able to play with the kittens.
Cost: $60
Duration: 2 hours

Each participant will receive a Kids N' Kritters pack full of goodies!

For participants that attend consecutive sessions, please provide a snack or lunch depending on the sessions they are attending.

We endeavor to keep as close to our curriculum as possible, however in the event of bad weather or not having animals suitable for the session we will alter the curriculum slightly and/or utilise staff animals. The session will still be interactive and lots of fun!

Please remember:

  • All participants should bring their own labeled drink bottle
  • All participants must wear appropriate clothing, enclosed footwear, and sunscreen
  • Participants that attend consecutive sessions should bring a snack or lunch (nut and egg free)

Our session educator and volunteers all hold Working with Vulnerable People cards and have met RSPCA requirements to attend Kid’s N' Kritters. For this reason parents are welcome to wait in our waiting area for the duration of the session, however are unable to attend the session with their child. Under special circumstances, you may receive permission to attend, however you are required to hold a WWVP card and pay the participant fee in full.
