summer camp at safari Kid

Fun! Fun! Fun!
That is how our students in the past have described our summer programs.
At Safari Kid, we understand that summer is the best time in a child’s life. Our summer programs offer children a great balance of academics, sports, making friends and learning new skills in a fun and nurtured environment.
For summer 2018, our research team has worked with our teachers and curriculum developers to design the best of all activities for your child. Your child will learn how to design and print in 3D, build and program Lego robots, learn programming, create their own stop motion animation, compete in the summer Olympics, enroll in spy school, create their own movies, create business plans at our Carnival to raise money for charity and learn about the great Vikings!

Below you will find a brief description of activities offered for 3rd Grades and up.
