– Instead of coming through the main/front gate, you will enter through our private side gate off 183rd street! If using google maps, type in this address (1037 S. 183rd St W. Goddard, KS) and that will get you to the gate! Click here for an aerial google map view and pathway to assist as well!
– Click here for a photo of the gate which is **automatic** to enter (your car needs to be fairly close). If closed when leaving, you will approach the gate as close to the RIGHT side of the road as you can! The gate will close automatically behind you.
– When you come to the first “intersection” stick to the RIGHT! Click here for a photo.
– Shortly after you will go off to the left when you get to the second “intersection” to get to the classroom door! Click here for a photo.
– There are parking spots on both the left and right side of the entry drive for you to park and come into the main camp door for check-in/out! Click here for a photo.
What should parents do and/or fill out before camp starts?
How do check-in and check-out work?
As of this time, Tanganyika does not expect to close or alter programming due to COVID-19. Based on recommendations from the CDC and the Health Department, we are taking the following precautions in order to mitigate risk to the public that may be visiting us during this time:
Can I have someone else pick up my child?
I need to pick up my child early. Is that okay?
What is a typical day like during camp?
My child needs to take prescription medication during the camp day. How does that work?
If your child takes oral prescription medications or requires a topical medication that he or she can apply without adult intervention, our staff is able to administer those medications. On Monday morning, you will need to fill out a short authorization form detailing the name of the medication, the dosage, and what time(s) medication needs to be administered. Any topical medication that requires adult intervention or injection-based medication will be treated on a case-by-case basis. In most cases, we ask that a parent, guardian, or other trusted adult administer these medications during the camp day.
My child has some special needs. What kinds of accommodations are you able to provide?
What should campers bring and wear to camp?
Do you have any options for onsite lunch?
Yes! Our Safari Meal Plan is $32 for the week and includes lunch (entrée, chips, and juice) from our Pavilion Deli each day of camp. This plan price is for the full week only. Campers are not able to add individual days to the Meal Plan.
How do snacks and lunch work?
Will Camp visit the Gift Shop?
If my child attends camp for multiple weeks, will they get bored?
Not at all! Each week of camp incorporates a unique theme with its own demonstrations, crafts, games, and activities. However, all of our Safari Camps incorporate Park tours and animal visitors from the Education Department, and repeat campers will most likely see the same exhibits or meet the same animals over multiple weeks. Each week will emphasize different information about each animal, both due to the weekly camp theme and to help repeat campers remain engaged. Additionally, some camp activities (such as games and very occasionally some crafts) may be repeated throughout the course of the summer.
What if I have more questions?
Feel free to contact our Education Department (316-794-8954 ext 204 or email@example.com) with any other questions or concerns that you may have!
