Join us as we dig down into the dirt to discover all things rocks, fossils, dinos, and more!  In this camp, we will do a different "dig" every day; exploring various types of dirt and sand, identifying rocks, finding fossils, and learning all about dinosaurs.

In Dig It, children will: 

• Experiment with soil and erosion to study the rock cycle and find out how fossils are formed.

• Learn how paleontologists discover fossils and practice carefully extracting real life fossil samples.

• Build their own sand sifter to sort larger rock and fossil pieces out of the sand and dirt.

• Discover dinosaur bones and use their skulls and footprints to identify where and when they lived and what they ate.

• Create casts of fossils from shells and dinosaur skulls to take home. 

Participants must bring their own nut-free lunch and snack.  A complimentary pizza lunch will be provided on the last day of the camp. 

This is a drop-off program. Participants and one caregiver are invited to explore the Lab after camp hours free of charge. Additional family members may purchase their General Admission ticket at the door or in advance. Children must be accompanied by an adult while enjoying the Lab exhibit areas.

Member discounts are applied at checkout.
