We were all able to find time to get together for our staff Christmas paw-ty this past weekend! We met up at Andy B’s again for another round of bowling. This time we had three teams, all competing for bragging rights again!
Our captains were Chelsea, Carsen, and Chelsey. Games of Rock-Paper-Scissors decided the order of picking teams, and it was game-on from there! Team Chelsea ended up taking first place, but Team Carsen was right behind them in second place. Team Chelsey took third, but they kept their heads held high.
It was a great team-bonding experience, and we are looking forward to the next friendly competition to see if Team Chelsea can hold onto their title!
Madison, more commonly known as Maddie, started working at Camp in August of 2015 and we have loved having her since! Maddie has an undeniable passion for all animals and is studying to become a Marine Biologist.
Maddie’s favorite part about working at Camp is watching the Campers transform. Many of our Campers have been rescued, adopted, or are naturally very introverted. Seeing these Campers come day after day, make friends, and slowly come out of their shells with the encouragement and love of their Camp Counselors is icing on the cake for her!
At home, Maddie has a four-year old Golden Retriever named Zeke. You’ll never find him too far from Maddie. He is 100% a mama’s boy, and can usually be found in her lap, under her feet, or right next to her – with his tennis ball, of course! Zeke loves to run, play fetch, and help Maddie with all of her day to day activities.
When Maddie is not at school or at Camp, she enjoys traveling whenever she has the chance – especially to the beach. Maddie also loves going to the lake, hiking, swimming, and all sorts of DIY Pinterest projects!

It is very common for us to have multiple dogs of one breed at Camp at the same time but, every now and then. they look so much alike we have to do a double take!
This is just one of the reasons we are constantly putting CBW name tags on your pup. You never know when your dog’s doppelgänger will show up at Camp! Can you tell which pup is which?!
From Monday, December 5th to Sunday, December 25th, we will be collecting donations for Rescue One! Rescue One is a local adoption agency that is near and dear to our hearts, as many of our Campers have found their fur-ever homes through them!
This holiday season they are in need of:
- Dry dog food
- Dry puppy food
- Chew toys
- Puppy pads
- Dog beds (all sizes)
- Flea/Tick preventative
- Gently used items are also greatly appreciated
Rescue One is in need of about 18,000 pounds of food, so for every bag of food you bring in your name will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE week of Day Camp for your pup! You read that right, if you bring in three bags of food, your name will be entered in the drawing three times!
Bring in your items anytime you stop by Camp before Christmas. We appreciate your generosity!
Our December Camper of the Month is Mowgli! He is a seven-month old German Shepherd who started coming to Camp last month and we fell in love with him instantly!
Prior to being adopted by his parents, Mowgli suffered a broken neck. While it is healed now and his head movements are limited, he does not let it slow him down at all! Mowgli greets us with a hug and kisses every time he comes to Camp before he goes back to see all of his friends in Charlie’s Play Yard.
Mowgli was adopted from Rescue One, which is the organization that we are collecting donations for this month! We love Mowgli’s positive personality!
