Camp Dogwood is devoted to enhancing your knowledge about your dog, the bond between you and your dog, and the role of dogs in our community.

We’ve been there, traveling without our canine companion, missing them dearly, and knowing that our vacation would be complete if we only had our dog by our side. Camp Dogwood, Where You and Your Dog Stay & Play, is an all-inclusive vacation destination for dogs and their people. One of the longest running dog camps in the U.S., Camp Dogwood is a special place where like-minded “dog people” come together to bond with their dog, learn, have fun, and relax. Along the way, long lasting friends and memories are made.

Camp Dogwood has been featured on Animal Planet as Planet’s Best Dog Friendly Destination, as well as The Today Show, Fox News, WGN News, You and Me This Morning WCIU, Steve Dale Pet Show, Reader’s Digest, Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, Sun Times, Daily Herald, Bark, Modern Dog, Midwest Living, Chicago Magazine, Dog Fancy, and Animal Wellness.

Camp is my favorite place in the world. I can focus totally on my girls, it's a chance to give a little fun time back to them in return for all they give me. They get to try so many things that we don't have in our area. And I love being around other people who feel the same way about their dogs as I do.
