Summer Camp at Safari Science

Located in Burlington and Oakville

There’s Babysitting. And then there’s CAMP! Camp Safari Science that is.

At Safari Science camp, your children will be dazzled by science, learn about animals, create hands-on projects and want to keep coming back for more!

We guarantee your kids will not only have a great time, but they’ll be learning in an engaging, fun, and supportive environment.

What makes Camp Safari Science different?

While some camps offer child minding and daily programs, our camps are tailored to provide experiential learning experiences. In other words, learning – just for the fun of it! Your children will learn about their environment, how things work, learn about animals and their habitats, and so much more. We recognize that no two children are the same, and provide an atmosphere that is fun, non-judgemental and engaging. We can’t promise they won’t be tired at the end of the day though!

Our camps are not one-size-fits-all. You can choose a full week, half-days for younger kids, or even pick just one day – the choice is yours.

What does a day at Camp Safari Science look like?

Our campers will enjoy a variety of fun activities, but each day will include:

Creature Feature – every day we’ll meet a new animal that ties into the day’s theme. Every day our campers interact with 3 – 5 different animals!

Flavour Factory – Make and taste new treats! Every food has a history and science behind it, so while we are whipping up delicious treats, we’re learning about what it is and where it comes from

Makers Bench – make a really cool project you can keep and take home. Campers will love to show off their creations to their parents!

Steam Studio – Hands-on science at its best. Who knew learning was SO much fun? The STEAM studio allows campers to engage in interactive experiences including science, technology, engineering, arts and math!

Field Trips and Outdoor expeditions – Each week of camp we offer off-site outings. Outdoor Expeditions on Tuesday and Big Trek Thursdays.

Outdoor Expeditions let our campers experience the great outdoors!  We visit parks and splash pads – but our splash pad is not your typical splash pad; 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, African Lion Safari, Royal Botanical Gardens and Halton Conservation areas.

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.
