PAWS University Campers (and their adults) can choose any combination of workshops, academies, and extras. Begin by deciding if you are participating in one of our academies, then choosing from our one-week themed workshops. Daily schedules can be filled with extras (Library Hour, Lunch Bunch, PAWS Plus) to attend the entire day (7:30AM – 5:00PM). Choose as many workshops and activities as you want!
