Pug Camp will be held August 16-18, 2019. You can arrive any time after lunch on Friday.
Pug Camp will be held at Camp Westmont in Poyntelle, PA.
There are two main aspects to Pug Camp.
- The Camp:
There is a minimum number of attendees we need to have to lock in our rental of the facilities. That number is 67 people. Once we hit that number, any surplus money taken in purely for attending will go to the participating pug rescues. Once 67 people register, 33.3% of every registration will be added to the pot.
Pug Camp will provide a list of suggested activities, or you can come up with your own. Each event will benefit a rescue of the organizers’ choosing. It is up to the event organizer to decide what the fee will be to participate in their event.
Pug Camp is a division of Pug Squad Inc., a not for profit 501c3.
A single bed of a bunk bed in a shared bunk with 5 other people (and dogs). Note: there will be no more than 6 people assigned to a bunk.
Price: $190.00 per person
Private Room/Double Occupancy*
Price: $450.00 – (price is for 2 people)
If you prefer to stay at a hotel off camp grounds, but will still be joining for meals and events.
1 Night: Friday or Saturday
Lodging and meals are included. Dinner Friday night; breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday; breakfast and lunch on Sunday. All events over the course of the weekend will be an additional fee that goes directly to the rescues running them.
You will be sleeping in bunks. We will try to keep the number of people in each bunk to 6. There are a limited number of private rooms that have their own bathrooms.
There is only one full size bed in the private rooms. They are for one or two people. If you want to add a third, you will still need to be charged for that extra person, as we are charged per person by the camp. It would probably be better to stay in a bunk for more than two people.
Absolutely, you can bring whatever you like! The bunks do not have refrigerators, so if you are staying in the bunk, you will need a cooler. The building that has the private rooms does have a refrigerator that will be shared.
However many you want to pay for!
See answer #1, there will be a variety of events both days!
No, there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the camp grounds.
Yes, but there are a limited number of spots for vendors, and only one vendor per category is allowed. Ex. only one vendor that sells dog treats will be allowed. The exception is rescues, which are allowed to sell any items.
Vendors will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. You can sign up here. The vendor fee is waived for any of the participating rescues. If you are a rescue and want to be a vendor, please contact us for the coupon code to have have your fee waived.
While there is no air conditioning in the rooms, it is quite cool in the mountains. During the day we are outside for activities, and at night, the temperature drops to the 50’s (or lower). So far we have not had any issues with pugs of any age being too hot!
All dogs are welcome at pug camp as long as they are friendly, non-aggressive dogs. For dogs over 30 lbs, there will be a restriction on the number allowed at camp, so make sure to reserve early if you are coming with a larger dog!
Yes, you are required to have your vet fill out the Veterinarian Form with dates for your dog’s most recent shots. You need to complete a form for each dog you bring to Pug Camp. Titers are accepted. Failure to do so will mean you will not be allowed entry at Pug Camp, and any money paid will be forfeited.
Yes, dogs are required to be spayed or neutered. If there is a medical reason for which they cannot be, please contact us and we will evaluate the situation.
Yes, there is a place on the registration form to rent blankets, sheets, pillows, and towels for the weekend if you can’t or don’t want to bring your own.
There is wi-fi. A password will be available once you come to Pug Camp.
