Looking for summer adventure?

Looking for something fun and exciting for your kids this summer? Our Dino Discovery Camps are the place to be! Campers will have a blast exploring and interacting, using a hands-on approach to applying real science in ways so fun they won’t even realize they’re learning. This summer at our state-of-the-art facility, they’ll dig in to paleontology, geology, and fossil discovery, using the resources of our museum and taught by trained teachers and scientists. Register today to bring science to life!

  • All camps are 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM daily and include lunch.
  • Each day is different and campers are welcome to attend one, two, or all three days.
  • Camps will be the same material for the different grades but taught with age-appropriate approach and focus.
  • All camps are aligned with state and federal science standards.
  • Each attendee will get a field book to take home, among other souvenirs.

Fun With Fossils

Have you ever wondered about fossils? Are you interested in getting your own hands-on experience with them in a museum setting? Then Fun with Fossils is for you! Learn how fossils form in a fun science-based game, and then work on your very own real fish fossil that you can take home. You will make cast fossil impressions, and classify a Trilobite like a real scientist! Take home a fossil field book and the fun continues on your own.

Dinosaur Discovery

Solve prehistoric mysteries as you take on the role of a paleontologist. Hands-on activities will help campers learn about dinosaur anatomy and behavior. Explore the exciting worlds of paleontology with games and activities. Identify ancient shark teeth, sort out dinosaur tracks, and take home some surprises. A dino lover’s delight!

Geology Exploration

Do you love rocks? Do you wonder how minerals got so pretty? Investigate the deep secrets of geology to uncover the dynamic earth processes that have created rocks, minerals and more! Learn how rocks and minerals are identified, break open geodes, and run fun experiments! Field book and fun takeaways go home with you so you can continue exploring!
