Summer Camp at Safari Science

2 Locations - Burlington and Oakville

Daily Camp Schedule is Below

Camp Overview

We pack every day of camp with exciting activities. Here are a few things you can expect every day:

Creature Feature

Each day we’ll meet a featured animal that ties into the days theme. We always have a few other animal friends join in the fun too. Each on-site day, campers will meet and interact with 3-5 animals!

Flavour Factory

Every day, we’ll be making and tasting new treats! Every food has history and science behind it, so for a double treat, we’ll be learning about what we eat.

Makers Bench

Every maker’s bench provides the opportunity to make really cool project campers can keep and take home. You’ll be amazed by some of your children’s creations!

STEAM Studio

Hands-on science at its best is learning that feels like play. The STEAM Studio allows campers to engage in interactive experiences that involve science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

Field Trips and Outdoor Expeditions

Each week of Camp has two outings; Outdoor Expeditions on Tuesday and Big Treks on Thursdays. It’s always great to go on an adventure and explore the world! Here is a sample of what they look like:

Outdoor Expeditions

Each week, we make sure our campers get lots of fresh air!  Explore nature, play games, splash in the water park. Our splash pad is not your typical splash pad, so older children enjoy it as well. If a pool and splash pad had a baby, then you’d get the splash pad at La Salle Park in Burlington. It’s a big area that’s a couple of feet deep, and is monitored by lifeguards and is in a fenced-in area.Splash pad admission is included in your camp tuition. Don’t forget to bring a bathing suit, towel, and sunscreen!

Big Trek Thursday’s

Thursday is our big trip day. Thursday field trips vary depending on your camp location. 

Locations include the Royal Ontario Museum, The Ontario Science Centre, Ripley’s Aquarium and African Lion Safari, Royal Botanical Gardens and Halton Conservation areas. 

These are our favourite places for trips because they have more than you can do in a day and make for great ways to further explore the topics we are covering at camp.

In Between Activities

Each day at camp has a bit of time between our scheduled activities. During this time we keep the kids busy with group games and stations for free time activities. Our campers always have an amazing time socializing and making new friends throughout the day.

Camper Ages

We have two age groups at camp. We make sure each age group has similarly aged children to interact with. This way there’s always a balance and the campers can have the most fun. Plus we also have different activities or versions of activities prepared for our JR and SR campers.

  • Jr Ages 5-6
  • Sr Ages 7-11

Camp Staff

Our camp staff are passionate about teaching and encouraging children. They’re all first aid and CPR trained, and have valid police checks.  You can expect to be greeted by happy enthusiastic counsellors that your child will love to be around.
