Platte River Safari & Flying Higher

Platte River Safari Camps- June 28-30 or July 5-7, 2022 

Platte River Safari Camp is a nature day camp where children can learn about the Platte River and other natural areas in at Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary. Campers take part in a variety of hands-on activities that include natural and physical science, language arts, history, agriculture, music and art, while having fun. Campers participate in activities not normally offered during the school year like getting wet and muddy – all for the sake of learning!

This year, each camp session will be limited to 30 campers and will run from 8:30 am-3:30 pm Tuesday-Thursday. Campers must bring a sack lunch and a mask every day.

Platte River Safari Camp is for any student currently in grades 2 through 5 for the 2021-2022 school year. Registration is now closed for Safari camp. Financial aid is available for qualified applicants. Please contact Beka Yates at 308-468-5282 or e-mail for more information.

This year, each camp session will be limited to 15 campers and will run from 8:30 am-3:30 pm Tuesday-Thursday. Campers must bring a sack lunch and a mask every day.
