New Camper Application

Please copy and paste information into an email along with the required documents. You may also request a PDF version of this application by emailing here! 

We are not accepting any New Camper Applicants. The next New Camper selection process will take place in early January 2022.  If you are looking for dates between now and the end of the year we will not be able to accommodate you at this time as our spaces are reserved for current families. New Campers who would like to be considered in our January 2022 round of selections can fill out the application and send it to us along with the required documentation and we will include your family in our next selection. 

 

 

Hello from Camp!

Thank you for your interest in our facility & for taking the time to complete this application for camp. Please note before continuing:

1. All campers over the age of 1 year must be spayed or neutered in order to come to camp. 

2. We require an evaluation day camp day for all applicants. If your application is selected, we will contact you to reserve your requested overnight dates and your evaluation day camp date. Unfortunately, we are unable to honor a reservation for overnight camping without this evaluation. (Dogs under one year old may be exempt from this on a case-by-case basis)

Things To Know:

We work exactly like a hotel. Check out time is at noon Monday - Saturday. There is no charge for the last day if pick up is before noon. If your campers spend the entire day with us and are picked up between 5-7pm the daily rate applies and the room is theirs until noon the following day in the event you get delayed. We do not offer a morning pick up time on Sunday while we prepare our weekend campers to leave so all campers are charged for the day. 

Day Camp drop off is Monday - Friday 8:30am - Noon, however we request you arrive by 10am to enjoy all activities and group play. Pick up is anytime between 5-7pm. Day camp cannot be tacked on to an overnight reservation. Day campers are dropped off in the morning and picked up in the evening the same day. 

We offer Room Service to all campers.  Our current menu can be located under the More Tab on the main menu and will give you an idea of some activities that go on at camp. These fun addons for our campers help support a different rescue, or individual case, each month. Win-Win! If you decide you want anything off the room service menu, we will supply the menu to you at check in. 

In the event your dog is not selected as a camper during the next round of selections, it does not mean that you do not have a fabulous dog. Often times it simply means that we cannot accommodate everyone who wants a space at camp due to our size limitations. We choose to stay small to maintain our personal promise of giving our campers all they deserve.  We would love for all dogs to come play – however, we are small and can accommodate only a select few.

Other times it means we have made a determination we are not the right fit for your dog. We are a fabulous place for most dogs, but certainly not the best fit for all dogs. We want dogs to be safe, healthy and happy. If we believe we cannot keep those 3 promises, our duty is to be forthright and honest about that. We will let you know why we made the determination that we did. If your dog was not chosen in a specific round of selection due to availability you can request consideration in the next round. 

Please ensure all questions are answered as honestly as you can.  The questions are not a test. They are simply used as a gauge to determine if we can safely care for a member of your family. Please send shot records even if you are missing the Canine Influenza. We will review an application without proof of the Canine Influenza however, if chosen, your camper will be required to get that before evaluation day. Do not forget to include a photo of your dog. We will only consider applications that are complete.

Each completed application is reviewed by two senior staff members.   We make every effort to get the status of campers’ selection to you as soon as we possibly can after the application period is closed and selections have been made.  We suggest that you always have a back up plan in the event your camper is not selected. We have had hundreds of applicants for each round of selection and typically choose ten new campers with 5 alternates so a back up plan is essential. 

 

Please feel free to contact us at bedandbiscuits@gmail.com with any questions you may have.

Lastly, this form is not a confirmation of secured reservation dates.  If you have immediate needs for overnight care we can provide you with a recommendation of a facility that we trust and does not require an application or selection. Our process does not allow us to be able to book immediate needs for new clients.  Please watch the website for selection opening and closing dates for New Campers.  You may turn your application in at any time however selections will not occur outside of the dates posted on the website.

 

Current families of Bed and Biscuits who are applying for a new family member  - please let us know that.  We use a different process for your dogs. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

Ivy, Michelle and the Gang
