How does a vacation with your best canine buddy in a lovely setting with lots of outdoor, totally dog-friendly safe, and fun activities sound? If you’re ready, check out Canine Camp Getaway!

Take your pick of two very special settings – scenic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania or the beautiful, rustic Catskill Mountains of New York. Stay as busy as you like with dog-centered classes, DOGA (yes, yoga with your dog), “Barks & Crafts,” outdoor dining, dog-friendly karaoke, and nightly entertainment. Or simply relax – in Gettysburg with a private, man-made lake for the dogs or in a dog-friendly pool in the Catskills.

Canine Camp Getaway is a one-of-a-kind vacation geared to dog lovers and their dogs. Both facilities are totally dog-friendly for all ages, sizes, and abilities – dining and Yappy Hours, and days filled with activities you can share with your pup including hiking, agility, swimming, Frisbee, lure coursing, canine freestyle dance, and more!

In addition, there are classes on lots of topics including Canine CPR, seminars from veterinarians and trainers, and resources on how to help your dog live a happy and healthy life! The venues, while different, are people-friendly too; Gettysburg has a few more amenities, while East Durham emphasizes an unplugged, laid-back feel.

Rates range from $1,025 (meals and activities only) to $1,650 per person in Gettysburg and $825 (meals and activities only) to $1,300 per person in East Durham, depending on occupancy. There is also a brand new in 2023 “Getaway Plus” rate for the full East Durham September 25th – October 1st package. Rates for “Getaway Plus” range from $1,500 (meals and activities only) to $2,300. Full rates include meals, accommodations, and all dog activities.
