Luna Lobos Summer Camps 2014
Luna Lobos Dog Sledding is offering summer camps. We not only teach the fundamentals of dog sledding, but we will also teach basic outdoor survival skills. The kids will have one-on-one interaction with the dogs. They will know what it is to care for and train a sled dog. They will also learn the different skills any Musher needs out in the wilderness in order to run a successful team. Guest speakers from different types of dog training backgrounds such as, search and rescue, service dogs, etc, will be providing a lesson on their line of work during camp week. Camp will be from 8 am to 12 pm Monday through Thursday.
Over Nights are optional at the Luna Lobos Ranch. We will condense the week into two days.
Welcome campers to Luna Lobos Ranch! We give a Mushers 101, showing kennels, dog yard, equipment, types of sleds, etc. Hike up to "Howling Point" were we set up camp.
