What Makes Animal Camp Jamaica Unique?
Animal Camp Jamaica (ACJ) is a summer teen travel and adventure program offered by the same owners of Cub Creek Science Camp, Lori and Scott Martin. The Martin's have been vacationing in Jamaica for more than 20 years and have fallen in love with the island's and are eager to share its beauty, culture, and people with others.
Our campers stay at our privately owned villa, Seven Palms Villa. Located in a family friendly neighborhood, the villa sits beside the golf course on two-acres. The estate has lots of fruit trees, flowering bushes, and a tennis court, which is currently being used for basketball and playing with the villa dogs. Just a short walk from the villa is the Cardiff Hall beach, and a little farther of a walk is our private beach known as Jamaican Breeze. Both beaches offer outstanding snorkeling. By living in a villa, campers have access to many modern conveniences, including air-conditioning, television, wi-fi, a clothes washer and a private pool.
Animal Camp Jamaica's program is unique in its nature. We combine marine biology and conservation concepts, with cultural immersion, and adventure! ACJ was designed to teach and inspire participants to care about the environment and build an understanding of what they can do that will have a positive impact on the earth. The island of Jamaica has so much to offer: beautiful scenery, an incredible history, and original foods! We are so excited to share all of this with everyone who joins us!
Our campers’ safety is our number one priority. It is integral to everything we do. We are always mindful of our role and the trust you place in us. While we know that to travel and be active inherently involves risk that cannot be eliminated, we have put processes in place to safeguard everyone and greatly reduce risk.
We understand that teen travel programs are expensive, but our program is more economical than any other Caribbean summer program out there. Because we own our own property, we don't have to pay a middleman for services and we are able to pass the savings on to you. We also are friends with the owners of many of the facilities and programs who give us discounts and special privileges.
