Jurassic Park Summer Camp

July 8 @ 8:30 am - July 12 @ 4:00 pm


This school age summer camp brings the excitement of the prehistoric world to life for kids. They will learn about dinosaurs, create their own fossil projects, and participate in Jurassic-themed activities and games.

Why not venture out and see if we can discover some fossils of our own? Great idea! We will visit our friends at Penn Dixie to do just that.

We could have the next generation of paleontologists right under our nose!



Museum members receive a $25 discount on all classes.


Age & Participation: This camp is designed for children is grades K – 3

8:30 AM – Drop-off // 4:00 PM – Pick-up
