Upcoming Programs

Camp Pinniped

Our facility offers a unique experience for children to witness a marine mammal hospital in action! Campers learn how our animal care team rehabilitates our seal and sea lion patients through a series of mock activities including weighing fish, preparing fish smoothies, cleaning pens and learning the art of marine mammal rescue. Each day has a different theme in order to provide a well-rounded study of our ocean environment. Each theme is creatively reinforced through games, arts and crafts.
