same time, enjoying all the fun of an overnight summer camp;
swimming, fishing, exploring, tie dying a t-shirt,
roasting marshmallows, shooting a bow and arrow, making
crafts and singing songs.
In addition to all of our
animals, at Cub Creek Science Camp, campers can; solve a
mystery in our
Crime Science course, make fudge in our Candy
Factory, fly down a zip line at the ropes course,
build their own shelter and fire, and then cook a meal and
sleep outside in our Survival Skill campout.
Our kids camp combines the best
aspects of a traditional overnight summer camp, a science camp, a
zoo camp and an
animal camp, to create a
truly one of a kind experience. Cub Creek Science Camp
began operation in 1993. Each summer we have campers
attend from nearly every state and many different countries.

only overnight animal camp in the country and offers one
of the only
Jr. Vet programs, as well as many other unique camp activities.

child to come to Cub Creek Science Camp than it is to go to camps in many other
states that may even be
