Come learn all about dinosaurs and paleontology!

Week of July 2630 | Sold Out

Please Note: Dino Discovery is currently sold out

Dig into the past--and present-- to discover dinosaurs! We’ll investigate if all dinosaurs are really extinct, what color dinosaurs were, and just what makes a dinosaur a dinosaur anyway! We’ll even get some practice in digging up fossils and putting them back together just like a paleontologist.

Pricing

Summer camp is $250 for members and $300 for non-members. Camp fees include a daily snack, camp t-shirt, water bottle and all camp activities. Campers will need to bring their own lunch to help energize them for our scientific adventures.

Our campers are divided into two groups - rising 1–3 and 4–6 graders - so we can tailor activities for each age group. Camps include opportunities to explore the Museum, visit our Dome Theater and participate in a variety of Live Science Programs. Campers will also get a chance to experience our summer touring exhibition Tyrannosaurus: Meet the Family.

Schedule

Camps will be held from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-camp care is available until 5:30 p.m. for $50 per week per child to help make these extraordinary experiences possible for all schedules. Families must register prior to using this service.
