Skip Navigation LinksWinter Handling Camps

KineticDog is hosting our eighth annual Winter Camp with instructors Mary Ellen Barry, Jessica Ajoux and Perry DeWitt. What a great way to ward off the winter blues! These camps will be held at Orchard Hills Dog Training in Barto, PA.  The site is indoors, heated on Sprinturf. 


We are starting out with announcing and opening two handling camps for the weekend of February 18-20. Announcements regarding offerings for the weekend of February 25-27 will be made after registration for weekend one is completed.  It is possible that February 25-27, weekend two, will be filled from the waitlist of the weekend one.

EDIT: Offerings for the Feb 25-27 weekend will NOT be identical to Feb 18-20.  If there is an extensive waitlist for the first weekend of camps, those people may "possibly" be offered spots for similar sessions on the second weekend.





Camp is now full with an extensive waitlist. We are currently taking only registrations for auditing spots.
