Where is Pug Camp?

Pug Camp will be held at Camp Westmont in Poyntelle, PA.

How does Pug Camp work?

There are two main aspects to Pug Camp.

  1. 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.
  2. Events:
    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.

Where do we sleep?

You will be sleeping in bunks. There are mostly bunk beds, and the bunks sleep 12. We will try to keep the number of people in each bunk to 6. There are a limited number of private rooms in shared housing. This means you will have your own bedroom, but will be sharing bathrooms & showers.

Can I bring food, beverages, wine?

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.

How many people can I bring?

However many you want to pay for!

What will we do all day?

See answer #1, there will be a variety of events both days!

Is smoking permitted at camp?

No, there is no smoking allowed anywhere on the camp ground.

Are vendors invited to Pug Camp?

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 apply here.

Are dogs other than pugs permitted at Pug Camp?

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!

Does my dog need to be up to date on vaccinations?

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.

Are dogs required to be spayed or neutered?

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.

I'm flying in, can I rent blankets, sheets, etc.?

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.

What is internet access like there?

There is no wi-fi, but you should be able to access email, Instagram, Facebook, etc. through your cellular account. Keep in mind that Pug Camp is in the mountains of PA, so access can be spotty in places.
