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 technology of the Gregg Interactive Learning Studio, help to reinforce what campers learn outdoors.
In this session of Safari Vacation Camp, we will investigate a different habitat of Odiorne Point State Park in its winter setting each day. We will conduct scavenger hunts, look for signs of wildlife, add to our nature journals, and play fun games in the snow. We will have time indoors to warm up, check-in on our live animals, and explore our exhibits, including the new exhibit, the Edge of the Sea!
