For everyone’s safety, we have decided to cancel our 2020 Summer Dog Camp. We know that many of you have been looking forward to camp this year, but we feel that canceling is best for everyone. We hope you’ll join us virtually from now through June 30 for the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community and watch some our youngest service dogs in training grow on our puppy cams.
Spend a week with Susquehanna Service Dogs and the dogs in training! Children ages 10–14 are invited to attend Susquehanna Service Dogs’ Summer Dog Camp on July 13–17 or July 20–24. Each day, campers have the opportunity to work hands-on with their own service dog to perform the tasks the dogs need to become working dogs, including taking their dog out in public.
- July 13–17 or July 20–24
- 8:30 a.m. – 3:45 p.m.
- 1078 Gravel Hill Road
Grantville, PA 17028
Led by our professional staff, campers learn the fundamentals of basic dog care and clicker training, the positive training method we use to train our service dogs. Campers also learn about Susquehanna Service Dogs and how service dogs assist people with disabilities.
Parents, family, and friends are invited to the graduation ceremony on the last day of camp to see each camper perform the task they chose and taught their dog during the week. Each camper receives a graduation certificate.
Summer Dog Camp is a unique opportunity for kids to learn a valuable skill that will ultimately assist people with disabilities.
