Summer Animal Camp

[smartslider3 slider=2]

At Cub Creek Science and Animal Camp, kids don't just learn about animals, they interact with animals.

This summer camp has been created to give kids hands-on interactions with lots of different kinds of animals, the kinds of up close and personal encounters that will be remembered for a lifetime!

Cub Creek Science & Animal Camp is the only residential camp in the country with it's own zoo. It was created by an animal enthusiast for animal enthusiasts. We have lots of animal related activities and offer the opportunity to interact with more animals than any other animal camp.

Things to consider when selecting a summer animal camp:

What type of animals does the summer camp have? – We have over 100 species.

Is the summer camp facility USDA licensed?  – We are!

Is the summer camp ACA accredited? – We are!

Does the summer camp let you hold, touch, feed and care for the animals or just look at and learn about them? – Campers get to hold, touch, feed, AND care for the animals.
