Dates: December 30, 2016 to January 1, 2017
Winter Camp sessions are perfect for connecting with like-minded dog people and their dogs in a relaxed camp setting. Large (hopefully snowy) fields, hot chocolate (or wine!!!), roasting marshmallows around a roaring fire, time for naps, lingering delicious meals, and a few scheduled activities each day make Winter Camp days some of our favorites at camp.
We will be serving breakfast & lunch on Saturday and Brunch on Sunday, plus Catered Camp Dinners (BYOB) on Friday & Saturday, with a special Dog Friendly New Year’s Eve Celebration.

Activities for Winter/New Year’s Eve Camp this year will include: Barn Hunt, Trick Training, Build Your Own Agility Jump (to take home), Hikes, Nosework Sniff n Go, Paint Your Pet Night, Sheep Herding & Lure Coursing (if weather conditions are amenable), Indoor & Outdoor Camp Fires, Funagle (team version), Special Arts & Crafts Project, Stir Crazy: How to Keep Your Dog Mentally Stimulated, Meditation Rocks for Your & Your Dog, Hour long human massages, New Year’s Eve games for you and your dog, Champagne toast at midnight under the stars, New Year’s Morning Mimosas & Bloody Mary Bar, and a perpetual hot chocolate/coffee bar to keep you warm the entire weekend. Additional activities and surprises are in the works, plus all the spontaneous fun created by campers hanging out together. For those interested, cross country ski and snow shoe rentals are available nearby in Baraboo at Wildside Action Sports.
As directors, Winter Camp is our personal favorite camp of the year – the slower pace and more intimate group really gives us a chance to bond with everyone for good conversation and laughs. The lack of the typical hustle and bustle is something to be embraced at Winter Camp. We look forward to a great relaxing weekend for everyone where we can all get away where You and Your Dog Stay & Play!
WE ALSO HAVE GIFT CERTIFICATES IN ANY AMOUNT! TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT YOU’D LIKE A CAMP DOGWOOD GIFT CERTIFICATE FOR THE HOLIDAYS, AND WE’LL TAKE CARE OF THE REST!
