Summer Camp 2018

Dogwood summer camps are meant for kids and teens, ages 8 to 17 years old. Our programs are perfect for anyone interested in the human-animal bond! Each week, the day-camp has a dog related theme (after all, we are DOGwood). The mornings are spent working with the Dogwood K9 Crew, some dogs in training for people with disabilities, and maybe even your new puppy (ask for details). Kids learn about puppies, adult and senior dogs! We teach empathy, perspective taking, relationship development, care of family pets, grooming, brain games for dogs, positive reinforcement training, jobs dogs do, cooking for humans and hounds, and so much more! In the afternoon, the dogs rest, while the humans participate in other fun activities such as movies, board games, arts and crafts, snack making, and more! Some camps that involve production of items might stay at Dogwood for our dog play yard, go to rescue/shelter dogs, and some may go home with campers.
