Dog Days: Summer Camp!

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). We will have content and activities for beginners as well as youth who have attended other programs.

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 at Deer Grove Leisure Center, both inside and outside.

We price our programs to be affordable for most families. The Dog Days camp will cost more to run than the fees collected. We also want to support youth who need help with the fees by offering scholarships when needed. If you would like to support our programs, please use the link below.

  1. This sounds like an amazing opportunity for kids to learn about dog safety and handling in a fun and educational setting! It’s great to see organizations like Paws 4 Kids 4 Paws offering programs that not only teach valuable skills but also support the community through scholarships. If you know any young animal lovers, this could be a fantastic summer camp experience for them.
