Camp Activities

We offer some amazing activities at camp- over 100 of them!! At Cub Creek Science Camp our campers can be found feeding a sloth or lemur, watching a live surgery, or adopting an animal for a week! As you look through our activities, you'll see we offer much more than just animal activities. See below that campers get to do so much at Cub Creek!

What we are trying to say is don’t judge a book by its cover. Some people read “Science Camp” and think we are all about classrooms and books, when really nothing can be further from the truth! We are all about friendship, fun, curiosity guided learning, building self confidence, learning problem solving skills, and creating memories to last a lifetime. If at the end of summer our campers say that they made friends, had fun, learned lots and want to come back, then we have accomplished our goal!
