Summer Camp

Thank you for your interest in coming to the MSPCA at Nevins Farm Summer Camp!  Registration for the summer of 2024 is open – we currently only have open spots for Session A (ages 6-7), or as a Counselor in Training for various weeks (age 14 ONLY).  Please add yourself to the waitlist for any sessions that are sold out using the link below. 

Please email us at, or call us at 978-687-7453 x6108, if you have any questions about camp.  We are looking forward to welcoming our campers back next summer!

At Nevins Farm

The MSPCA at Nevins Farm Children’s Summer Camp teaches lifetime lessons of compassion, responsibility and respect not only toward animals, but toward all life and the environment as a whole. Our day camp is hosted for eight weeks during the summer, offered in one week sessions.  All campers work alongside the barn and adoption center staff, participating in the care of our animals; activities include mucking horse stalls, cleaning rabbit cages, feeding cats, walking dogs and socializing (petting and playing with!) the many creatures at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm.  In addition to the experience providing care to a variety of animals on site, campers also learn about important animal welfare topics in daily discussions, and meet a variety of animal care professionals who participate as guest speakers.  And just like any fun summer camp experience, our campers make crafts, sing songs, and play games!

  • Each one week session of camp has a tuition of $500, except for Session C, which is $400 due to the holiday.  The weekly tuition for a Counselor in Training (CIT) session is $275.  There is no fee for our volunteer Junior Counselors.  The full tuition amount is due at the time of registration.
  • There are full and partial scholarships available for families in need.
  • Registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis.  We recommend registering early, as our camp is popular and will sell out
  • The summer camp runs from 9am-3pm Monday – Friday, from late June to mid-August
  • Our camp is for children between the ages of 6-14 (see the schedule for what weeks are available for your age group)
  • You will need a digital copy of your child’s immunization records in order to complete our online registration form 

The MSPCA Children’s Summer Camp is licensed in accordance with Massachusetts mandated regulations 105 CMR 430.000 et. seq.: Minimum Sanitation and Safety Standards for Recreational Camps for Children, by the Methuen Public Health Department.
