Time Traveler Training – Have you ever wanted to jump in a time machine and travel back in time to see the dinosaurs? This camp teaches how to do that with your imagination instead of a time machine. Along the way, we’ll turn plants into fossils, learn how to navigate the eras of Earth’s history, and explore the Park with a whole new mindset.

Mammoth Beasts and How to Find Them – Come join us on an exploration of the Ice Age! We’ll search for animals like mammoths, saber-tooth cats, and giant bears, learn how they kept warm, and how-to hunt for them—back then AND now. We may even “clone” our own mammoth!

 

Session 2 – Thursday June 20, 2024 9:00am-11:00am &12:00-2:00

 

Dino Defenses: Beaks, Horns, and Tails with Thorns – Prehistory can be both exciting and dangerous, so this camp will show how prehistoric animals played defense.

Dino Predators: Teeth, Claws, and Powerful Jaws – It’s time to turn the tables and explore some of the fiercest animals in Earth’s history!

We’ll explore the fossils that reveal this and other wild carnosaur behaviors during this carnivorous camp.
