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

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.

At Beckendorff Junior High School, Ron Reese will again be leading this year’s camp.  Ron has been a teacher in public education for the past 27 years.  He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from the State University of New York, at Buffalo.  He spent the first six years of his career in the inner city of Houston, and since moved out to Katy to start and raise his family.  He has been teaching in the Katy ISD for the past 20 years.  He currently teaches sixth grade science at Beckendorff Junior High School.  This will be his fifth summer of facilitating the Summer Science Safari in Katy.  

Even though the Camp operates from Beckendorff Junior High School, all current 5th through 8th grade students in the Greater Katy area are welcome.

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.
