Summer Camp 2015

Summer Camp 2015

An Adventure Like No Other

Discover an adventure like no other during the Safari Park’s Summer Camp! There may be many types of summer camp for kids, but few will have campers interacting with rhinos and giraffes, meeting meerkats, getting up close to cheetahs, feeding okapis, and discovering African wonders the way the Safari Park’s will. This is hands-on, join-in, be-a-part-of-it fun! If your children love animals, the Safari Park is the place for them this summer.

Extended-day options are available for full- and half-day cam
For questions or to reserve a spot, please call 619-718-3000.
