Campers will run free in our spacious play areas interacting with other campers inside and outside with close supervision by our trained camp counselors. Dogs are grouped by size or activity level. Rest times and cots are available for naps and water flows throughout the day for your enjoyment.

To ensure all campers are happy, we discourage food/treats during DAY CARE. Overnight guests, please bring your own brand of dog food to ensure you do not get sick. You will be fed according to your parents instructions in a private cabin.

We train our Camp Counselors to react quickly to evaluate all situations. Private cabins are available if needed. If an emergency, your parents will be contacted. If immediate vet attention is needed, we will take your dog to a preferred or local vet immediately.

Our Camp Counselors can administer medication in pill, powder or liquid form. We do not give injections. All medication must be in the original container.

We do not allow any outside toys, balls, bones or chews for Day Care. Happy campers enjoy the companionship of others without the stress of outside items. Overnight guests are allowed bones, beds and a toy for their cabin.
