Pet Photography: 9 to 10 a.m.
Colleen Carnevale has been voted one of the region's best pet photographers in each of the last four "San Diego A List" surveys. Her gentle and low-key approach to taking photos has allowed her to capture images of even the most skittish and shy animals. She'll share easy to use tips and techniques to help you improve the photos you take, using whatever camera you own (yes, even the camera in your phone). Cost is $20.
Critter Camp will be held from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. July 7-11 at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Cost is $65 for one week. All campers must be ages 6 through 12.
During the weeklong camps, the Humane Society’s trained educational staff will have many animals for kids to see, hold, play with and feed. Some of the animals are familiar, such as puppies, kittens and bunnies, but others are more exotic, such as snakes, lizards and insects.
For more information and to enroll, call Ina Shookhoff, Director of Education, at (760) 888-2261 or e-mail email@example.com.
Pet First-Aid: 10:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
This course is a must for pet owners. Be prepared by understanding the basics of pet first-aid and how to respond to emergencies. Class will be taught by American Red Cross-trained Sue Lockhart. Cost is $45.
Animal Telepathy: 1 to 2 p.m.
Talking to animals? Is that even possible? Yes, it is! Come to the seminar taught by animal communicator Cindy Richardson to learn more about it. What does animal communication or telepath mean? Can I do it too, or do you have to be "psychic"? What issues can it solve for animals? Does it help vets or trainers? Does it help the pet's people? Please accept this invitation to come and find out. Cost is $20.
Calling all kids! Critter Camp kicks off in July
