Policies & Requirements

We have listed all policies and requirements below.



All dogs must be free of parasites (fleas, ticks, and heartworms) and on a monthly preventative. All dogs are inspected upon entry into the facility. If fleas/ticks are found, they will be treated at an additional cost to you.


Our guests must be a minimum of four months of age.


Upon admission to camp, all campers must be free from any condition that could potentially jeopardize other campers. (No coughing, vomiting, or diarrhea 48 hours before arrival at the facility.) Guardians will certify that their dog(s) are in good health and have not been ill with a communicable condition in the last 30 days. Suppose the camper has had a communicable condition within the last 30 days. In that case, we will require a veterinarian certification of health to be admitted or re-admitted.

We cannot accommodate dogs that must be “kept calm” for any portion of the day. We cannot accept any dog that currently has stitches or is recovering from surgery. Overnight camping without day camp privileges is still available if this is the case.

Collar / ID

Dogs must wear a collar with an ID tag or permanent identification to stay at the camp and be on a leash when dropping off. Retractable leashes are not permitted. Dogs attending Day Camp are asked to use a quick-release collar for their pet’s safety. Quick-release collars are available for purchase at the Dog Camp.


All Campers must have up-to-date vaccinations. Owners must submit written proof of Rabies, DHLPP (distemper), Bordetella (canine cough), and a negative fecal test. Bordatella must be done every six months. These vaccines must be completed at least five days before your camper’s arrival. Proof of these vaccinations by a veterinarian must be in our possession before arrival.


Because we want to ensure our campers are safe and happy at all times, we cannot accept aggressive dogs or dogs who cannot interact socially with other canines. To ensure our guests’ happiness and well-being, all dogs must undergo a camp interview before being allowed to participate in daycare activities. This will enable us to ascertain the temperament and social skills of the dog and to ensure that the dog will enjoy participating in the services offered by Maple Tree Dog Camp. Your camper will be placed in the group that fits their playfulness and size best. We request owners be present during this test to understand the decision in placing your camper. Please allow an hour for this process. Reservations are required for camp interview.

If your dog is aggressive toward other dogs, overnight camping is still available, but your dog will be kept separate from other campers.


Dogs wishing to attend day camp over 7-8 months old must be spayed or neutered. (Unaltered dogs destabilize the pack and are at greater risk for injury by other dogs; females in season show more aggression). We can still allow overnight campers that have not been altered, but there will be no interaction with other campers.

Day Camp Hours

We are open Mondays from 7am-5:30pm-Tuesday-Friday 7am-6pm and Saturday 8am-5pm, we are closed daily from 12:30pm-2:30pm.

Overnight Camp Hours: We are like a hotel so your camper needs to be picked up before 12:30 pm the day of checkout to avoid a late pickup fee ($15).  If your dog is cleared for dog camp then they can play for an additional charge ($13.50) and you can be picked up anytime before we close. Boarding dogs that DO NOT go to camp can be dropped off anytime after 2:30 pm for boarding. If you need to drop off earlier then there will be an additional charge ($15)

If an owner cannot pick up their pet on the scheduled check-out date before we close, there will be an additional overnight fee, and their pet will be available for pick up  the following day, beginning at 7a.m M-F and 8am on Saturday. Also, note that pets may be transferred from their cabin to a traditional dog house to accommodate scheduled incoming guests.


Overnight camp must be canceled no later than two (2) days prior to scheduled arrival day. If the reservation is canceled after that time, a one-night stay fee will be charged.


When making a reservation on a Holiday we will be collecting a $100 per pet deposit- if the reservation is canceled less than 2 weeks prior to the reservation, Maple Tree Dog Camp will keep the deposit.

Holidays are: New Year, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.


Pets that become excessively destructive may be moved to a traditional boarding dog house, and/or bedding may be removed. Owners will accept financial responsibility for any damage their pet may cause. Please inform the camp staff if your dog is afraid of storms. If your pet has been prescribed medications for a thunderstorm, firework, or other phobias, bring that medication with you!

This is a new experience for your pet, and behavior might vary from what you are used to at home. We will provide a report card summarizing what your camper has done while at Dog Camp.

Owners are solely responsible for any actions, harm, or destruction caused by their pet/s while at Maple Tree Dog Camp, including but not limited to any physical or property damage, medical bills, and or/legal bills.

As an owner, you are solely responsible for all acts and behavior of their pet/s while at Maple Tree Dog Camp and to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Maple Tree Dog Camp and its staff from injury to third parties.

Overnight Camp Bag

We recommend bringing the campers’ food (a change in diet will likely cause an upset stomach) and any medications they may need overnight when you drop off campers for overnight stays. We have raised dog beds in every cabin/cottage and can provide beds upon request. If you forget food, we will provide food at an additional cost. Meals must be pre-packaged in Ziploc baggies or a small airtight container for each dog. No bags of food or large containers are allowed. Bowls and blankets are provided by Maple Tree Dog Camp, no need to bring your own.


All medication MUST be in the original container, whether prescription or OTC. Prescription medications must clearly show the pet’s name, medication strength and dosage.
