Pacific Marine Mammal Center
Join Pacific Marine Mammal Center and witness a marine mammal hospital in action! Campers learn how our animal care team rescues and rehabilitates our seal and sea lion patients through a series of mock activities and even join our team in the hospital to create ‘fish pops’ for our patients, cleaning pens, and weighing and sorting their meals. Discover the sea lions along our coast, listen to the songs of Humpback whales and learn about one of the only freshwater dolphins! Through games, crafts, science labs, and hands-on activities, your camper will become an ocean steward and learn about the marine mammals that call the ocean home.
