Activity Leader in Training (fall 2019)

Activity Leader in Training Program

Our Dog Days of Summer weekly themed camps are filled with unique and engaging activities for our campers, ages 6-12 years old.

Frolic is excited to offer our teenage dog lovers the opportunity to not only be part of our summer camp, but to also develop their leadership capabilities through our Activity Leader in Training role.

If your child is interested in a summer where they can gain valuable experience for the future, while also socializing with other young dog lovers in a wholesome environment, please complete our online application by Friday, June 14th, 2019.  You and your child will be contacted to schedule an in-person interview by Monday, June 17th.

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who showed interest in our first summer Activity Leader in Training Program. We are no longer accepting applications for this summer, but check back in July for ALT opportunities in the Fall and Winter!
