The Summer Science Safari Summer Camp--Katy/Beck JHS

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 06/28/2019
The Summer Science Safari is a Science Oriented summer camp for students currently in Grades 5-8 serving areas all around the Greater Houston Area. Think of the camp as 12-15 field trips a week to places where SCIENCE REALLY HAPPENS.

Where Science and Summer Fun Meet!


It’s that time of year again and we’ve been working hard to prepare a science camp experience that will make your student excited about science.  We will explore some new destinations as well as some old favorites.  Your student has seen the pictures in the science textbooks, now they can experience the science in action, first hand.  Whether it’s experiencing flying high at I-Fly or exploring the Hill Country by Zip-Line, your child is sure to learn and see many fascinating things—not to mention having a great time. Who knows, we might blow up something!

We believe the middle school/junior high years are a time for exploring and investigation…and having a lot of fun learning along the way. Young people are developing their dreams for the future at this age.  At Summer Science Safari, we help students envision their futures.  We pack as much science and learning into five days as we can by taking students to places where science actually happens, then top it off with lots of fun.  Think of our camps 12-15 field trips to places where science actually happens.

Once again, we are proud to announce that Kate Kitchens and Kristen Rush will be offering the Summer Science Safari Summer Camp at Beck JHS.

Kate Kitchens attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where she received her bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. She began her career as a 5th Grade Science teacher in Katy ISD. After 3 years of teaching 5th grade, Kate made the movie to Junior High to teach 6th grade science. Kate has a passion for all things education and science and enjoys sharing that passion with her students. Kristen Rush started her career in science studying and working in marine biology in Bermuda and Corpus Christi. Following a stint synthesizing DNA she decided to return to school and received her Masters in Secondary Science Education from the University of Houston. Kristen has taught a variety of science courses, from aquatic science to integrated physics and chemistry to environmental science, geology and the variety of topics covered in 8th grade. Obviously, science is her love! This is Kate and Kristen’s third year leading the Summer Science Safari at Beck and they have lots of experience leading field trips and have a passion to show your students what fun science can be.

We are again offering this exciting camp in the Kingwood/Atascocita/Humble areas, The Woodlands, Katy, Sugar Land/Fort Bend County, and Clear Lake City/The Bay Area. We will pick up and return students to a Middle School, Junior High School or Intermediate school in these areas, however, all current year 5th through 8th grade students IN THESE AREAS are eligible to attend.  in fact, students come from around the country to our camp.  See our website and the Kids Out and About Calender for details and local area information.

We’re excited to bring this wonderful program to you this year.
