For 2 hours each day, your camper will join their dino diggin’ crew and an expert instructor to learn what life was like in the age of “terrible lizards.” All material is inspired by our featured guest stars and partners.
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: 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 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.
AfterCamp Mesozoic Challenges
After your camper returns from their journey to the lost world, they can take on a daily Mesozoic Challenge in the Learning Lab. Challenges are led by featured guest stars and dive even deeper into the time of dinosaurs.
Learning “in the field” is half the fun for young dino hunters. Your camper will have plenty of time to get outside and get their hands dirty with tons of included hands-on activities.
Dino Discovery StarCourses
Get those paleontologist tools ready, because your camper will be invited to our upcoming Dino Discovery StarCourses. They’ll learn about dinosaurs and fossil hunting directly from renowned experts during these unique live experiences.
