Transportation information – Families have busy lives and often make various transportation arrangements for their children, both dropping off and picking up from camp. To ensure that the children are only released to the proper adults, Pre-Vet and Vet Science Camp requires all children to be signed out and the individual picking them up must be on the approved pick up list provided by the parent AND show photo ID at the time of pick up. If camp attendees are permitted to drive, they will be allowed to sign themselves out; however, they are not permitted to drive to the field trip locations. To ensure your child's safety, please list below the individuals authorized to sign out your camper.
Refund & Cancellation – For cancellations prior to May 1, a 100% refund is provided. For cancellations between May 1 and June 1, a 50% refund is provided. For cancellations after June 1, the total fee is forfeited. In the event that your child enrolls in camp and withdraws because of homesickness or is asked to leave because of misconduct, there will be no refund. We, the parent/guardian of the camper, have read and understand the terms and conditions of the Refund and Cancellation Policy and agree to subscribe to them by checking the box below.

Common surfaces at the Roanoke Valley SPCA are sanitized frequently and public/volunteer access to building is by appointment only. Masks are required for all non-vaccinated individuals and social distancing practiced. All Roanoke Valley SPCA summer camp staff have been required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
During the week of camp, as campers travel to program partners in the van, they will be in close contact with each other and social distancing is not possible. In an attempt to be as safe as possible, we are requiring that all campers comply with the following COVID health and safety guidelines in order to participate in summer camp:
- All campers must be up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines as outlined in the CDC guidelines listed below, including a booster shot if appropriate. The recommendations are different depending on your age, your health status, and when you first got vaccinated. Upload/email a copy of the vaccine card a minimum of two weeks to start of camp.
- All campers must bring a mask to camp each day and comply with program partner guidelines to wear the mask if requested.
- Participants may not attend camp if they are experiencing any signs or symptoms of illness.
- Participants are required to alert the program coordinator if they have been exposed to a positive COVID-19 individual. According to the CDC guidelines, an exposure is considered when an individual has been within six feet of a positive individual for at least 15 minutes. Neither individual's vaccine status matters when determining an exposure. If a participant is exposed, they will be required to follow the CDC guidelines. CDC guidelines at this time are for exposed individuals to wear a mask for a minimum of 10 days following exposure. Quarantine/isolation is not required and participants may continue to attend camp as long as they are asymptomatic and wear a mask at all times (except lunch).
- The Roanoke Valley SPCA may update our COVID-19 protocols at any time, including during camp. If protocols change, guardians will be notified of all changes and participants will be expected to comply with any updates.
- The Roanoke Valley SPCA will not refund any full or partial fee for participants who withdraw from camp because of a COVID-19 exposure, positive diagnosis, illness, or any other reason.
