What makes Cub Creek Science Camp so special?!

Our Animals

dsc_0616-2Cub Creek Science Camp is the only residential summer camp in the US with a private, hands-on zoo! 300 animals make up our animal family and include lemurs, wallabies, parrots, foxes, sloths, lizards, and many more! Our campers enjoy incredible encounters with our animals and can participate in a range of activities based off their interests! Those campers who have future plans of being a veterinarian can take our Jr. Vet course: a week long course that goes into the tasks of every veterinarian! Camp’s most popular activity is called Adopt an Animal. For a whole week, campers spend a part of their day caring for, learning about, and befriending an animal of their choosing. Read more our animals and animal activities.

Our Activities

dsc_0681Beyond our 300 animals, camp has an impressive variety of activities! Campers who love science (like we do!) can enjoy our science activities. In Chemistry, campers can learn about non-Newtonian fluids by making oobleck- a goop that is technically both a liquid and a solid! Physics, Botany, Geology, and Entomology include more of our science driven courses. Looking for more adventure? We got you covered! Campers can spend their week exploring camp in hikes, shooting arrows on the archery range, or challenging themselves on our 6-element ropes course! In all, camp has over 100 activities! To explore all camp has to offer, check out the “Camp Activities” tab at the top!

Our Facility

dsc_0963-copyhalfCub Creek Science Camp is known for its modern and incredible accommodations. Each cabin is designed to house 16 campers, and 4 staff members in a spacious, air-conditioned environment with 4 private restrooms/ showers. Campers share a curtained bunk room with one roommate over their stay at camp. Our newest facility is our stunning, 17,000 sq ft dining hall helping to accommodate our 250 campers and 90 staff members each session for every meal. Meals are served buffet style allowing for campers to have the choice or how much, how little, and of what item they enjoy for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In case the meal being served isn’t desired, campers have access to bagels, ramen, mac and cheese, cereal, baked potatoes, a salad bar, and fresh fruit for each meal!

Our Staff

dsc_1027We take pride in our 90+ summer staff team! Each member of camp is dedicated to making summer camp a memorable, fun, and safe experience. We train our summer team for two weeks prior to the first day of camp. Two-weeks of staff training is longer than the training for most camps out there! Each camp staff member is interviewed and has passed a background check prior to working at camp. We hire counselors from all over the world! Counselors not only travel across the United States to help us make memorable and lasting summers, but from abroad as well!

Explore and you’ll see that Cub Creek Science Camp is a truly UNIQUE summer camp experience for campers! Give us a call or email us to talk! We would love to hear from you and tell you more about CCSC!
