Rocks rock! That’s what your junior geologist will learn along with a group of 6-9 other club members through expert-led sessions exploring volcanoes, earthquakes, rock formations, gemstones, and much much more. Clubs meet weekly for interactive explorations, and themes change monthly.



Theme of the Month:

  • January: Rocks — Nature’s Greatest Storytellers — This month, junior geologists will learn how rocks tell the long story of earth’s history...and its future. They’ll see how scientists have used rocks to answer age-old questions (like what happened to the dinosaurs?), and how to draw those conclusions for themselves.

  • February: Fancy Rocks — Gems, Minerals, & Crystals — From diamond rings to gold bars to ruby slippers, mankind’s most prized possessions are the world’s most dazzling rocks. Junior geologists will explore how those rocks are formed—both naturally and in labs—and what makes them so rare, so beautiful, and so valuable.

  • March: Underground Exploration: Volcanoes, Earthquakes, & Plate Tectonics — The ground beneath us seems firm and stable, but in reality, it’s in constant motion. This month, junior geologists will visit volcanoes, examine earthquakes, and explore the constantly changing configuration of continents as they examine how rocks shape the world around us.

  • April: Space & Dinosaurs Rock — What do space and dinosaurs have in common with rocks? This month campers will find out, as they discover meteors and craters and uncover the fossil record, which proves that Earth has been home to amazing creatures and pieces of other planets.

  • May: Fascinating Formations — Big or small, from the Grand Canyon to a handful of crystals, rock formations are among the most alluring sights on earth. This month, junior geologists will explore the earth’s most exotic rock formations and the processes that create them.
