Service animals are allowed, all other dogs are not!
Into the Woods welcomes and supports the rights and attendance of all persons with disabilities that rely on the special skills of a trained service animal. What we DO NOT support, nor will tolerate, are pets being misrepresented by their owners as service animals, when in fact they are not. So please, don’t do it.
Service Animal Definition:
A ‘service animal’ means “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the handler’s disability.”
Emotional support or comfort animals are not considered service animals under the ADA and therefore are not allowed at Into The Woods.
Service Animal Policies:
• Service animals must be accompanied by the handler with the disability at all times.
• Service animals must be under the control and supervision of their handler at all times.
• Service animals are not permitted to be left in camp unattended under any circumstances.
• Handlers are required to be prepared for, and clean-up after, their animals at all times.
• We reserve the right to remove and/or refuse access to any service animal from the campgrounds or venues if that animal is deemed to be a health or safety threat to festival patrons, staff, or other service animals, or in violation of these policies.
• All service animals must be credentialed by the ITW staff (see the procedures below).
Service Animal Procedures:
All patrons with disabilities attending Into the Woods this year with a service animal will need to have that animal credentialed by Into the Woods staff at the main gate.
What will you need to do? It’s easy. Once you arrive, come to the Main Gate. Staff will speak with you, record your contact information and give you a collar tag for your service animal.
