Summer Camp

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 2017, our research team has worked with our teachers and curriculum developers to design the best of all activities for your child. Your child will become an App Inventor, build and program Lego robots, learn programming, design and print 3D models, participate in our Star Wars STEM program, compete in our Safari Olympics, go camping, learn about space travel, visit Facebook, Google and Tesla and create business plans at our Carnival to raise money for charity.

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