This year we would like to share the Wildlife Safari Park with our campers through Summer Day Camps! Our Camps are designed by trained education professionals who bring many years of experience, along with a dedicated passion for providing a unique STEM learning environment for your camper. Summer 2023 is loaded with interactive educational experiences, tours, animal encounters, and more. Campers must fall within their age groups by the first day of camp. Sack lunch and refillable water bottle are required. Camps run five days a week from 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Parents will be required to transport their camper to the Lee Simons Wildlife Safari Park

Due to funds from the Watchable Wildlife Grant, through the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Wildlife Safari Park is proud to present a special aspect of nocturnal wildlife education to all our Education programs. During your some of Education programs, Education instructors will be inserting Night Watch Education Program activities for all to enjoy. We might be creek walking, night viewing, or tracking white-tailed deer. Our trail camera will be recording species that visit our creek so that we can playback recordings and look at all the migratory animal in our area. Join us for this unique program and discover Nebraska at Night.
Come join us as we discover and practice adventurous outdoor skills or be creative with paints, pencils, and clay in the Darrald Harsh Wildlife Education Center at the Pawnee Creek Trailhead. Pop-up classes will take place during normal business hours. Classes will take place at random and cost as low as $2 per person to cover supplies. Be sure to check the bulletin board as you drive through the area for any classes being offered the day you're here. All ages are welcome. Youth must be accompanied by adults. No registration is required. Just POP in for a fun time!
