Registration is now open for our My Dog + Me Summer Camps! These camps will begin June 3rd, 2019 and continue on a weekly basis ending the week of August 2nd, 2019. Offered for ages 8 - 15 your child may bring your dog or we can provide a foster dog who would like some Playtime! These camps will be hosted at our location on Fish River in Fairhope, AL. For complete information please email us at CampLife@GrandHotelFishCamp.com
A classic summer camp experience like you may have had growing up. We offer a day camp for the camper and their dog where the camper will learn about dog behavior, training, and care. They will learn how to train their dog in obedience, dock diving, hunt test, field trials and other AKC styled events. After a morning of training, the campers and their dogs will have the opportunity to kayak and swim in Fish River and play on a sandbar with their dog. Other activities may include archery, plant and tree identification, river exploration, and fishing or fly casting. After a week with us the camper will be more than qualified to help Mom with pet care at home. Sorry, but we cannot guarantee that your dog will be qualified, they take a little longer!
Our camp is open for campers ages 8-15. If you do not have a dog we will let you train with one of our Labrador retrievers, or with one of our foster dogs. Camp will be Monday – Friday from 9am to 3pm. Extended hours are available.
For those teenagers ages 16-18 who are interested in training their dogs or a career with animals we have a program for assistant trainers. For these opportunities please contact us directly.
We are always looking for good camp counselors. If you like working with people, training animals, and have good outdoor sports oriented skills then we are interested in speaking with you. A camp counselor for us will possess CPR First Aid certification and Lifeguard certification. We will expect you to be self disciplined, prompt and on time, and have a desire to learn. We will teach you the rest. Please contact us directly.
