Animal Care Instructors introduce children aged 4 – 9 to the basics of animal care with our camp farm animals. The animal care program currently features a miniature cow, two pygmy goats, two sheep, and two potbelly pigs.

Staff ride the bus to camp each day with their campers. Buses leave from North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, Calabasas, West Hills, Agoura, Westlake, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Simi Valley, and Newbury Park. If your home is within 30 minutes of any of these locations, you can easily be a part of our program this summer.
