OTTAWA – Yesterday (July 20), the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) launched its Off-Leash Camp@Home program – an online educational video series where children learn about animals, the important work of the OHS, responsible pet ownership and more.
Every two days, the OHS will release a new episode, each filled with fun facts, learning exercises and activities for children to complete at home. Off-Leash Camp@Home comes as a replacement for OHS Summer Camp, which is generally held onsite but had to be cancelled for 2020 due to the ongoing public health crisis.
The initial five episodes, the first of which was released yesterday, are all about the OHS. Children will be taken on a virtual tour of the OHS and learn all about different departments and why their work is so important.
“I’m thrilled that we’re launching the Off-Leash Camp@Home,” OHS President and CEO Bruce Roney said. “With most children having spent the last four months at home, we’re hoping to offer a new learning opportunity that’s both entertaining and educational.”
