Camp Pinniped at Home is a week-long, online program, offered by Pacific Marine Mammal Center, for kids, ages 8 – 12.
Camp Pinniped investigates marine science through the world of marine mammals and is full of fun, interactive activities and STEM oriented topics to keep kids learning.
Through a series of live chats, videos, presentations and activities, children will discover how we rescue and rehabilitate our seal and sea lion patients. They will also dive in and explore different careers in marine science, hearing from and talking with professionals, such as our animal rescuers, veterinarians and biologists, about what their job is like. Each day has a different marine mammal theme in order to provide a well-rounded study of our ocean environment.
The program is hosted by enthusiastic and engaging instructors who will lead your child through interactive activities and projects. No parent assistance is needed during the program!
This program is a science and conservation based program designed to educate, build awareness and interest about the environment, marine life and protecting it! This program is aligned with a variety of Next Generation Science Standards. As an added bonus, online campers will be invited to a future sea lion release at the beach!
If COVID19 restrictions are lifted and we can open to the public, we will be offering an onsite version for kids and teens full of hands on and observational activities around the animals!Connect:
