Animal Sanctuary Offers One Day Camps With Hands On Activities And Opportunities To Learn About Rescued Exotic Animals

Lions Tigers & Bears, San Diego’s only accredited big cat and bear sanctuary, is hosting single day youth summer camps on Wednesdays from 8:30AM to 2:30PM, from July 12 to August 16.

Youth Summer Camps at Lions Tigers & Bears

Children ages 8 to 11 are invited to choose one Wednesday this summer to learn about rescued exotic animals and participate in games and crafts. The first eligible 150 campers get their $100 fee waived.

Through guided visits, campers get the chance to be outdoors and see some of the 65-plus rescued exotic animals, including lions, tigers, bears, bobcats, jaguars and more, who can now call the sanctuary their home.

“We show campers the care and compassion it takes to provide for 19 species of our rescued animals,” said Lions Tigers & Bears Founder and Director Bobbi Brink. “Our camp’s young attendees will gain an understanding of the importance of our no kill, no breed sanctuary and share the love for our animals with our staff and volunteers.”

The youth summer camps is part of The County of San Diego reimbursement program, offering waived registration fees to the first 150 children who have not already participated in two sport or camp programs in San Diego County this year. Additional campers will be required to pay the $100 fee.
