Junior Paleontologists


July 29 - August 2, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Code: 3A0259

Imagine Washington, D.C., 110 million years ago as a swampy landscape filled with dinosaurs. Campers get the chance to investigate it as junior paleontologists, exploring prehistoric eras and the varieties and unique traits of the dinosaurs that roamed our backyards long, long ago. They learn what it means to be a real paleontologist by doing some fossil digging themselves.
