    Say hello to Artica, our member of the month for February 2024! Artica is a 75lb Siberian husky whom we fell in love with at first sight!

He goes above and beyond before his shift is over, and always comes into work with a clear and open mind. Mike has a bond with the campers like no other, and being around so many dogs that love him so much is the reason why he has such a passion for this job. One of our campers, Lila, is so attached to Mike that her owner said that if she ever had to give her away, Mike would be the one who got her. It's so amazing to see the relationships he builds with dogs and how attached they have gotten to him. That is the type of bond we want our counselors to have with our campers. Mike has a pup of his own, Molly, a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix who is attached to him at the hip. Some interesting things about Mike is that outside of work not only does he make his own music, he also installs swimming pools!

They both love to run outside and chase each other around the bridge, hardly taking a breath! When Bolt first started coming to camp, he was on the shyer side but Drago and his other friends surely put that to an end!

Fast forward to now, she is so happy to be around our staff and loves getting cuddles/pets during her snuggle times! She even has warmed up to the other dogs, and willingly goes in the yard to play! We love to see when a shy dog warms up and ends up learning to love camp. Our staff strives to see when dogs break out of their shell and it is the most honoring feeling.

Not only did he catch our eye by his unique looks, but Finn also has a very different personality than most pups. He is so well-rounded, playing so well with every dog, loving on every counselor, but also taking time to himself to snooze for his mid-day nap. Finn has made many friends during his time here, but he loves his fellow Australian Shepherd friend, Mocha! They play the day away and we love seeing how much fun they have together!
