Meet the Owners
Scott and Lori Martin are the founders, owners, and directors of Cub Creek Science & Animal Camp, located at Bear River Ranch. They met working at a summer camp in 1985. Scott was running the Ropes Course and Lori was working with the campers and running the Nature Program. They fell in love and married after a full three-year courtship. They now have two beautiful daughters who love camp and the special animals that call the Ranch home.
Lori started her "zoo" in their first house once Scott built a special room just for the animals that he promised her before they married. She also worked for many years with special needs campers always retaining her love of animals and the outdoors. Scott went to school for engineering and has designed and built the current camp facility including our comfortable cabins, the large barn, and animal habitat areas. Camp was just a natural development of both of their interests. During the summer months, Scott oversees the operation of the dining hall and facility maintenance while Lori supervises and trains the staff and ensures the high standards of the program.
Together they have built a unique program for children to experience the wonders of nature, explore the marvels of science, and get up close and personal with a number of different animal species. Their labor of love has educated and captivated children by imparting the spirit of adventure, creativity, and curiosity.
