Summer Camps

Volunteers participate all summer in the "Kids Care!" camps at Second Chance Center for Animals. The week long summer camps for students 8-15 years old end on Fridays with "Prairie Day."

Learning about ecosystems

Seeing our role in nature's balance

"Prairie Day" includes interactive games and crafts, a video and prairie dog snacks.

Creating prairie dioramas

Appreciating local wildlife

The presentation ends with an introduction to special guests, Ms. Feisty Britches and Mr. Bo Jangles.  (They were captured as juveniles during a recent relocation and were too young to be released without adults.  We strongly discourage keeping prairie dogs as pets.)

Meeting Habitat's ambassadors

Public Schools in Oklahoma City

Print Email

Our ambassador prairie dog, Mr. Bo Jangles, moved to Oklahoma in 2010 with one of our Board members.  He has made many public appearances in local schools in the Sooner State.  Mr. Bo Jangles has given a first hand account of his family’s loss of habitat in Arizona, as well as information on Oklahoma’s native population of prairie dogs.  Hundreds of kindergarten and elementary school students have learned about Oklahoma’s grasslands with the help of our engaging ambassador.
