Dinosaur Ridge Camps are an unforgettable adventure! Our camps keep kids moving and discovering in the incredible setting of our National Natural Landmark. These experiences are designed to foster excitement and wonder for science, art, and the outdoors while engaging in our hands-on educational curriculum.
Our small group sizes give every camper the opportunity to play, explore, and expand their knowledge. Each camp offers exploration of the Dinosaur Ridge fossil sites, hands-on science projects, as well as expert guest presenters in the fields of paleontology, geology, art, earth science, or local plants and animals.
2019/2020 School Year Day Camps!
Our day camps align with Jefferson County School District’s off-days.
Let’s get creative and see dinosaurs in a whole new light! This will be a day full of arts and crafts, dynamic lesson plans with engaging activities, a guest speaker, and hiking/outdoor fossil discovery (weather permitting)!
