Earth Science Exploration!
This February 17 Day Camp will be filled with hands-on activities, lessons, exploration, and games! We’ll create our own growing crystals and then go on a field trip to collect local rock samples and piece together Colorado’s prehistoric past. We’ll build models of how old mountains eroded away to create new layers that buried dinosaur bones, and we’ll explore fossils, rocks, and minerals with microscopes! It’ll be a fun day of adventure, so come spend Presidents Day with us! Register today!
