The Summer Science Safari Summer Camp--Richmond/Rosenberg/Fort Bend County
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.
