At Cub Creek Science Camp you will have the summer of a lifetime! Enjoy spending hands-on time with any of our 300 animals right here at camp! Learn about lemurs, take a walk with a llama, and hop with our wallabies! Along with our spectacular animals, we have an archery and riflery range, a 6-element ropes course, pottery and crafts studios, and a pool!

Under the guidance of our knowledgeable staff, campers choose 4 hands-on activities every day of their week of camp. Some of our activities include Jr. Vet, Adopt an Animal, Amazing Animals, Archery, Riflery, Culinary Science,  Survival Skills, Pottery, Ceramics, and many more!

Cub Creek Science Camp has 300 animals of over 100 different species. Most of these animals are handled and cared for by the campers themselves. We believe that one of the best ways to make a lasting impression is to give our campers the opportunity to get up close and personal with all our resident animals.

Our cabins are some of the best around! Each camper will share a semi-private bunk with one other camper. Each cabin has 8 bunks, making room for 16 campers total! Each cabin also has 4 qualified, friendly staff living with the campers in the "staff area".Our cabins are air-conditioned, with private bathrooms and shower rooms, and a common room with comfy couches.

We have home-cooked meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our large, spacious, air-conditioned dining hall. This building is  the newest addition to camp with enough seating to accomidate all of the campers, counselors, and leadership staff at camp! AND, believe it or not, there is an lemur enclosure inside! Our campers are able to watch the lemurs swing from tree to tree as they enjoy each meal. Don't worry, there's glass seperating the lemurs from the dining portion! 

Spend your summer at Cub Creek Science Camp making friends and memories to last a lifetime!
