Pacific Marine Mammal Center: Camp Pinniped

Pacific Marine Mammal Center offers a unique experience for children, ages 8 – 13, to witness a marine mammal hospital in action! A perfect experience for budding veterinarians, scientists and animal lovers!

Summer Camps in Laguna Beach

Campers learn how their animal care team rehabilitates their 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 hands on activities, science labs and crafts. Campers leave empowered with ways they can help protect and preserve our oceans. Every summer has new content so campers who return keep on learning!
