Camp Pinniped takes place April 4-8, 2022

PMMC offers a unique experience for kids to witness a marine mammal hospital in action. 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. Campers will be learning all about the gray whale, harbor seal and manatee through games, arts and crafts. On the last day, campers join PMMC at the beach and get to explore the tidepools and all the creatures that call it home.

Camp hours: Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at PMMC.

Cost: $350.

Dates: Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 8, 2022.

Ages: 8-12.

Marine Mammal Rehabilitation and Research Lab takes place April 11-15, 2022

This small group experience allows teens, ages 15-17, to explore different aspects of marine mammal science. Teens gain hands-on experience in animal husbandry while they work side by side with PMMC’s rescue and rehabilitation team, shadow their veterinarian on patient rounds and work as a team during activities related to ongoing research investigations at the Center. On the last day, the group goes out in the field with their researchers to conduct marine mammal observations to learn about research methods and techniques their scientists use to collect data.

Camp hours: Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at PMMC.

Cost: $500.

Dates: Monday, April 11 through Friday, April 15, 2022.

Ages: 15-17.

To register, go here.

Note: Masks must be worn while in PMMC’s classroom.
