The ultimate summer camp for teens

who love animals!



Combining science, animals and traditional camp activities to create the most fun you have ever had!





Cub Creek Science Camp takes place at Bear River Ranch, in Rolla, Missouri, in the heart of the USA.  We are less than a two hour drive from the nearest international airport.  Our staff are happy to meet campers at their gates and drive them to camp.


Our camp combines the best aspects of a traditional summer camp, a science camp, a zoo camp and an animal camp to create a truly one of a kind experience.  Cub Creek Science Camp began operation in 1993.  Each summer we have campers attend from nearly every state and many different countries. 


We offer one of the only Jr. Vet programs in the country, as well as a one-of-a-kind Adopt an Animal course, a crime science course, physics, chemistry and sixteen other hands-on courses.


We stand apart from other camps because of our many animals, our unique program opportunities and our fantastic camp facility. 

Some of our most recent course additions include; Crime Science, Culinary Science and Pottery





Bear River Ranch and Cub Creek Science Camp are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association.

Science is all about asking questions.  The process of discovering the answers is what Science Camp is all about.  Whether your question is; How can I make a clay pot on a wheel?  Does a kangaroo like raisins?  or What does it feel like to hold a hedgehog?  Campers enjoy learning that they can discover the answers, through their hands-on involvement at Cub Creek Science Camp.
