About Safari Camp

Seaside Safari Camp is a fun-filled learning adventure that takes advantage of the natural classroom just outside our doors in historic, 135-acre Odiorne Point State Park. The Center’s hands-on exhibits, scientific instruments, and teaching technologies help to reinforce what campers learn outdoors.

In this session of Safari Vacation Camp, we will investigate a different group of animals each day and discover their springtime activities in Odiorne Point State Park. We will learn how to identify wildlife in the park, play fun games to teach us about their adaptations, and add to our ‘Signs of Spring’ nature journals. We will have time indoors to check-in on our live animals, and explore our exhibits, including the new exhibit, the Edge of the Sea!
