ART AND SEA LION DISCOVERY CAMP
Brought to you by:
MARINE MAMMAL CARE CENTER LA & ANGELS GATE CULTURAL CENTER
Our camp mission is to inspire personal growth in children of all backgrounds through high quality programming that fosters an appreciation of arts, marine studies and ocean conservation. Our enriching summer day camp provides hands-on activities influenced by STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) and encourages exploration, creative thinking and will help develop social skills in a safe environment.
The camp is operated by two historically important regional charities in the Angels Gate Park area of San Pedro, namely Angels Gate Cultural Center and Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles (MMCC Los Angeles). Angels Gate Cultural Center is located in the 1940’s era army barracks of Angels Gate Park. The sea lion hospital of MMCC Los Angeles is located a very short walk below the cultural center.
Angels Gate Cultural Center provides quality, in-depth instruction to campers in the visual and performing arts Campers will create artworks around themes of sea life and ocean environment, and professional artists teach all classes. Campers will also engage in afternoon dance and movement classes, take art-exploration walks with trained naturalists and create visual art inspired by the landscapes of San Pedro and Angels Gate Park.
MMCC Los Angeles offers a unique experience of viewing seals and sea lions, and campers engage in activities on the science behind our seal and sea lion hospital. Your child will learn about how we care for injured seals and sea lions (also known as Pinnipeds). Campers observe hospital staff in action, but campers are not permitted to touch the animals. Campers learn about rescue beaches, how we diagnose and treat our patients, feeding techniques, and participate in “mock” animal care chores. If your child loves art, science, animals, or the ocean, this is the ideal summer day camp for them!
