Our Service Animal/Dog policy at Four Quarters is taken directly from Federal Statute and regulatory
law. Our plain English policy is stated below.
* Only DOGS qualify as Service Animals under Federal Law.
* Emotional Support Animals are not Service Animals, and are not permitted at Four Quarters.
* Service Animals in training are not Service Animals under Federal Law and only when wearing a “Service Animal” marked vest.
* Service Animals shall have physical identifiers such as registration tags, the presence of a labeled
harness or “the credible verbal assurances of a qualified individual with a disability using the animal.”
* In the case of an un-identified Service Animal, we shall ask two questions.
Is this animal required because of a disability?
What work or task has this animal been trained to perform?
* The service animal must at all times be tethered to and in the full control of their human team
* A Service Animal may never be handled by or tethered to a person other than their human team
* The Service Animal must always be in “Full Stay” command position when not performing the
service for which they have been trained.
* The Service Animal must be fully trained to urinate or defecate only on the command of their human
team member.
* In order to be considered a “Service Dog” under U.S. federal law, a dog must be partnered with an
individual with a disability AND perform specific, trained task work to mitigate that disability. Task
work is not optional. If a dog doesn’t perform task work, it is not a Service Dog.
In closing, if your Service Animal is registered, wearing a marked Service Animal Vest and fully
trained; you will find our staff and attendees very supportive of your teams presence here at Four
Quarters. Welcome!

Camp Fires & Grills
You may bring a fire ring to burn firewood. You may NOT burn wood outside of a fire ring. Using a fire ring helps us to preserve the land. NO FIRE OR ASH MAY TOUCH THE GROUND AT ANY POINT.  Firewood is available for purchase on site.  Because of Emerald Ash Borer, IT IS ILLEGAL TO BRING FIREWOOD from outside the campgrounds. This is a hazard to the plants, insects & animals indigenous to the land as it could introduce other organisms into the land that were not previously there. Charcoal grills of any kind are allowed, provided no fire or ash touches the ground.  Fire rings are provided free of charge in New Camp and Main Camp, however since they are limited in number we recommend bringing your own fire pit.
