Dino Discovery Camp (Ages 7-8)
Do you dream of digging up dinosaurs, or taking a Jurassic journey? Then we’ve got the camp for you. You’ll find fellow fossil-hunters and devour lots of dino data in the Dino Discovery Camp, where for an action-packed week you’ll join your new fossil friends for dinosaur discoveries, take on daily Mesozoic Challenges led by dinosaur museums and experts, and get up close and personal with the most amazing animals the world has ever seen.
Journey 1: Finding Fossils & Defining Dinosaurs -- Not all prehistoric creatures were dinosaurs, and not all old bones are fossils. Through a series of games, you’ll learn what dinosaurs and fossils truly are...and aren’t.
Journey 2: Triassic (and Jurassic and Cretaceous) Timeline -- The oldest Tyrannosaurus lived closer to your birthday than to the first dinosaur. Find out which dinosaurs were friends, and which never had a chance to know each other.
Journey 3: Your Favorite Fossilized Friends Pt. 1 (Teeth, Horns, & Armor) -- Explore the dinosaurs we love because of their built-in tools: the sharp-toothed Tyrannosaurus, horned Triceratops, armored Ankylosaurus, and more.
Journey 4: Your Favorite Fossilized Friends Pt. 2 (Gentle Giants & The Velocity of Raptors) -- Explore the dinosaurs we love because of their size and speed: the majestic Brontosaurus, the stately Stegosaurus, and of course the voracious Velociraptor, plus many more.
Journey 5: What Happened To The Dinosaurs? -- Learn how the age of the dinosaurs came to an end...but also which dinosaurs continued on, and what their ancestors are doing today.|In each session, you’ll learn how dinosaurs lived, what they ate, and what they looked like, and you’ll also learn how paleontologists made these discoveries and what else they’re trying to find out. Plus each session will include a paleontology project, since of course half the fun of dinosaur discovery is getting your hands dirty on a dig.
