Dog Days: Summer Camp! Communicating with Canines (July)
Dog Days is a 3-day camp program where youth learn dog safety, assessment, teaching, and handling. This will be an active day camp with actual lessons interacting with dogs we provide (no personal dogs allowed).
Paws 4 Kids 4 Paws is excited to continue our partnership with the Bensenville Park District to host events at park facilities. This day camp is open to Bensenville residents and non-residents.
Dog Days will be held OUTSIDE at Veterans Park, except on inclement weather days, when we will be at Deer Grove Leisure Center.
We plan to hold the camp outside and will have a tent and some shade. In the event of inclement weather, contact the park district to confirm the location.
