Created for dogs and dog lovers, Canine Camp Getaway is the ultimate dog-friendly vacation, filled with wonderful activities you can share with your four-legged best friend. From agility, barn hunt, hiking and swimming in the dog-friendly pool to lure coursing, nose work, DOGA (dog yoga), canine freestyle dance, “Barks & Crafts” and classes in Canine CPR, dog nutrition and so much more, this resort vacation offers something for everyone!
We welcome dogs of all sizes, ages and abilities, as long as they are social with dogs and humans. No formal training or experience is needed — our trainers, dog sport instructors and staff veterinarians will show you and your dog the ropes, whether your pup is looking to brush up on some old skills or learn a few new tricks. Dogs can try their paw at a wide variety of dog sports, or, if you prefer, you can just take it easy and hang out together by (or in) the pool, enjoy “Yappy Hour” in the dog-friendly lounge, or go for a hike with your best buddy to take in all the new sights and smells.
Held at the Eisenhower Hotel & Conference Center in Gettysburg, PA (June Camp) and the scenic Blackthorne Resort in the Catskill Mountains in East Durham, NY (September Camp), Canine Camp Getaway offers a choice of scenic locales where you and your dog can be close to nature. Both facilities offer plenty of wide open space for recharging body, mind and spirit, while strengthening the bond with your four-legged buddy.
Best of all, we’re “human friendly” too, so you don’t have to give up the vacation amenities you cherish — like private baths, air conditioning, cable TV, wi-fi, great food (with a special dog-friendly covered outdoor dining area), a dog-friendly bar and nighttime entertainment! If you’d like to explore further afield, the neighboring towns offers hiking, kayaking, farmers markets, shopping, historic sites and more.
