What To Bring To Camp Bark

Camper Packing Instructions: What To Pack For Camp?

 

FOOD: Camp Bark strives to make your camper's experience totally positive. In order to prevent upset stomach or digestive tract, we keep each camper on the same feeding schedule as home.

 

  • Please bring your dog's food labeled with his/her name (first and last!) in individual/per meal baggies or in gallon Ziplocs with per meal measurements written on the bag.

  • Please be sure to bring enough food for your dog's entire stay.

  • Please be sure and label all containers that you would like returned.

  • WE DO NOT need your dog's bowls from home; we supply all dog bowls.

  • We are happy to accommodate special diets, raw diets, and natural/homeopathic menus (you must provide all food and instructions).

TREATS: There is no need to pack treats as we have plenty here, but you are welcome to send treats to camp for your camper if you desire.

 

  • Please label all treats with your dog's name (first and last). We give out provided treats at breakfast, bedtime, and nap time.

  • Please only pack treats that are soft and easy to chew. Based upon veterinarian recommendations we no longer give rawhides to dogs in our care, because they pose safety concerns (e.g., digestion issues, blockages, choking hazards).

  • If your dog is not supposed to have treats due to diet or medical restrictions, please let a camp counselor know, so that your dog's records are appropriately updated.

 

MEDICATIONS AND SUPPLEMENTS: Per the Department of Agriculture all medications and supplements, must be in their original container with your dog's name, and correct dosage clearly marked. A $1 fee will be charged per medication, per administration.

 

PLEASE NOTE: If your dog has fleas prior to camp, they will be treated at your expense.

 

LEASH and COLLARS: Per the Department of Agriculture all dogs arriving at Camp Bark must come in and out of the building on a leash and have a collar with ID tags. We will remove their leash and collar once in the building for safe play and provide them with a paper collar. Please label your dogs leash and collar with your dog's name.

 

BEDDING: Please leave your dog's bedding and/or favorite blanket at home. We want your dog to feel totally comfortable, so we will provide cots with cozy blankets, so that your pet can nap and sleep comfortably.

 

TOYS: Camp Bark has plenty of toys and balls that we can provide to our campers in a supervised environment. Please leave all toys at home so that your camper's toys are not destroyed by other campers!
