Safari Kid Summer Camp has a reputation for offering the perfect blend of fun and learning. Whether it be through group collaboration projects, challenging games and activities, sports, dance, drama, or technology, our campers will surely enjoy this exciting time making new memories! Each year our research team works with teachers and curriculum developers to design engaging themes and activities, and 2023 is no different!
Little campers (TKG-2nd grades) will want to dive in to make their own slime, forecast the weather, identify creepy crawlies, invent the next million-dollar idea, and in true Safari Kid fashion, safari into Africa! For older campers (3rd and up), the final frontier awaits- whether that be space, virtual reality, or Hogwarts, adventure awaits! Would you rather become a spy, a superhero, a ballplayer, a marine biologist, or a movie director? With our Safari Kid Summer Camp, you don’t have to choose just one path!

DreamWorks vs Pixar
Lets visit the story of how DreamWorks and Pixar rise to become two of the biggest animation studios. While exploring the movie hits of both companies we will also channel our creativity and imagination to develop unique animated characters that will tell their own stories.
Night at the Museum
This classic movie takes place at the American Museum of Natural History and its characters are historical figures who come to life at night. Utilizing this idea of historical fantasy, we will set one foot in the past as we recreate and reimagine what once was by designing our own unique museum exhibits!
Spy Among Us
No junior spy is fully ready until they go through the stealth training shared within this camp. Master the art of code creating & busting, and stealthily maneuver obstacle courses & laser traps to get through an IRL Among Us challenge, and so youll never be sus!
Mother Earth thanks you for being so dedicated to the 3Rsreduce, reuse, and recycle. Learn other amazing ideas on how to be kind to Earth, too! We only have this one livable planet, its important to know how to actively treat her right!
Safari Kid campers will not want to miss watching their innovative visions and creative stories come to life during this week of virtual reality! They will learn how to create, design, and build engaging virtual environments through the use of a VR creation tool. Campers will develop their spatial skills, tap into their imaginations, and create immersive digital experiences. Have no doubt that your camper will be ready for the reality of the future after this week!
Get ready to be immersed in a hands-on experience of amazing technology where real life is modified and enhanced by computer-generated sights and sounds. Safari Kid campers will learn how to integrate digital information with live video or real time environments. Using smart devices and AR software, campers will create their own digital characters who will integrate with the real environment.
We know that all businesses require a web page in which to prove their existence. Your camper will be given an edge by learning how web pages are created and designed through the use of HTML and CSS code. Safari Kid campers will be given the amazing opportunity of learning how to consider the framework of a website they want to build and get familiar with reading, writing, and debugging HTML code.
In a world where complicated computer graphics such as CGI are dominating movies, there is a growing movement to get back to simpler, more artistic effects. In this week, students will learn the simple story telling charm of stop animation. They will enjoy delving into their imaginations to create a story line, setting, and characters to create their own stop animation movie. They will learn how to add music, sound effects, titles, and credits to their creation, and by the end of the week will delight in sharing this work of art with their peers.
We know kids have a natural fascination with both building things and taking things apart. This curiosity is how our little explorers figure out how things work in the world. Safari Kid Engineering Camp guides this natural curiosity into more formal explorations using hands-on learning strategies and project-based learning. Safari Kid campers will discover the process of construction through our innovative engineering curriculum in which they will investigate a problem, imagine a solution, and then work to design, create, and improve it. As a result, our campers self-confidence will blossom as they begin to see themselves as creative problem solvers, while also developing inner strength in character through their perseverance and determination.
