On Wednesday, four dogs from the Pet Assisted Therapy Program at the Peninsula Humane Society visited camp. The campers read their stories aloud and the dogs listened attentively. Campers were also given the chance to pet the dogs and gain inspiration for their stories and poems. We're looking forward to Sessions 3 and 5 when the dogs will visit again.
Welcome back to camp! This year, we kicked off the summer with a "Pet Parade" themed session. The first week was held at Roosevelt Elementary school. Campers wrote fictional stories about their pets and other topics and learned different forms of poetry. One of the best moments of the week was a visit from the PHS/SPCA Pet-Assisted Therapy dogs. Stay tuned for more photos of our furry writing companions.
