2024 Elementary Camps


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Calling all junior paleontologists! Our Elementary Camp sessions consist of a one-day, four-hour program designed for children ages 7-12. In these programs, young campers will explore the process of paleontology from fossil recovery to lab work, museum reconstructions to fossil interpretation. Some of the activities replicate cutting-edge paleontology directly from professional scientific literature. Each camp spotlights a specific prehistoric animal, drawing connections between it and its world, its relatives, and modern animals with similar lifestyles. If your child would love to take a deep dive into the world of science and paleontology this summer, these camps will provide them with an experience they will never forget!

Each camp is 4 hours

Lifestyles of the Iced and Ancient – Come join us for this exciting camp program which explores the Ice Age world of the Woolly Mammoth. We’ll discover elements of the Woolly Mammoth like their weird teeth, take a look at some of their contemporaries like saber-toothed cats and dire wolves, and even reconstruct a bit of Pleistocene Utah. You’ll never look at your neighborhood the same way again!

Armored and Predacious – In this camp program, junior paleontologists will examine the dynamic relationship between predator and prey by discovering the mighty Triceratops, its kin, and its nemesis: Tyrannosaurus rex. Campers will get a close look at some real Triceratops fossils and try their hands at role-playing as a horned dinosaur. We might even make a little Duck Soup using techniques developed by real scientists. Who would win in a fight: Triceratops or T. rex? Find out what the fossil record tells us about this epic matchup during this unforgettable experience!
