Can I bring my dog?
Please leave your canine and other animal friends at home for this event. This is to avoid all-night bark-a-thons created by having a large group of dogs on site, off-leash dogs chasing through non-dog camps, unexpected dog fights, and similar difficulties. Many of the coordinators—even those of us who have and love dogs!—have experienced large group campouts that have dogs, and seen first-hand the great challenges brought to the event by the presence of dogs. Please respect this request and leave your dogs at home.
The exception to this is trained service animals. If you do see a dog at the campout, it’s safe to assume that they are a service dog and they are working. Please do not approach service dogs and/or interact with them without explicit permission from their human. Doing so could distract the dog from their duties and prevent them from hearing important commands.
