*Sign up for one or multiple days!*

Royal Family Kids' Camps, Inc. is a network of camps, children's clubs, and child mentoring for abused, abandoned and neglected children in the foster care, system. The campers are selected by DCFS caseworkers who know which children have been severely abused and neglected and removed from their homes and are currently in foster care. The camp Activities Director says, "The kids come with many anxieties and triggers and so having therapy animals has always been a wonderful and very helpful tool for counselors whose kids need some “down” time and time to regroup during the day. It is always a blessing just the presence of therapy animals and the calming factor they provide."

Wolfe Creek Foundation Deployed Military Family Support

Saturday, August 6th
1:00 - 3:00 P.M.

The Wolf Creek Foundation has been offering a retreat for families of deployed military personnel for 17 years.  They come to beautiful Ogden Valley and participate in programs that help with family bonding, stress relief, and temporary ‘escape’ from the impact of deployment.  

In response to the current world situation and the dramatic increase in deployments, the Foundation is hosting a summer series for families of deployed military members.  This will happen on 3 Tuesdays and 3 Saturdays this summer.  There will be a program for parents, and separate activities for kids, which include 4 stations they will rotate through during the 2 hours (30 minutes/ station).  The stations include physical activities/dance, art, music and therapy animals.  We think the therapy animal station will allow kids from families who are experiencing stress to “love” on the animals, learn about therapy animals and what they do.  Many of these families are unable to have pets of their own, and the opportunity to interact with them in whatever way works for each therapy team would be greatly appreciated!

Rock-A-Bye Child Care Center

Monday, August 15th
10:00 - 11:30 A.M.

Rock-A-Bye Child Care Center has a high percentage of low-income families attending their daycare. Their mission is to provide quality care to the community at an affordable price to provide a safe and loving environment conducive to learning. They have requested events with therapy animals throughout the Summer to help the children to understand how to handle animals with gentle hands and soft voices as well as play nicely. They also hope to introduce relaxation and coping strategies for children who do not return to the best homes when the day is over. There are a few students who attend the daycare with autism and developmental delays as well.

Park City Learning Center

Wednesday, September 14th
1:30 - 2:30 P.M.

Park City Learning Center is a specialized high school for students with mental heath difficulties. Based on each student’s individual needs, there would be a modified schedule, mental health supports (individual and group), recreational therapy groups, credit recovery, support for students recently returning to the High School from out-of-district therapeutic programs, and a space to participate in academic programming with smaller, more intimate class settings. They would like an event with therapy animals during their lunch hour. In the future, they may want to implement animal therapy into their unique therapy programs.

Slate Canyon Youth Detention Center

Saturday, October 8th
9:00 - 11:00 A.M.

The Slate Canyon Youth Center is a lock down correctional facility for juveniles. Many of the residents have anxiety and depression and the staff would like some therapy dogs to give the adolescents a calming experience with positive interaction from the community. The youth are in units and can not be intermixed with other units, so they will be visiting the therapy animals in rotations. Each rotation will have about 18 residents with a 5-10 minute interval between units. We are hoping to coordinate at least 4 teams for 18 residents at a time.

This event will be held outdoors, as the residents do not get much opportunity to go outside on a regular basis.
