Kids invited to go on day camps with dinos
Museum summer programming now open for registration
May 2, 2017
The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum is now accepting registration for its summer day camp programs for young children aged 4 through 10.
“Our day camps are week-long programs that are designed to be both fun and educational,” says museum program instructor Nicholas Carter. “We want to give kids the opportunity to learn about and explore the natural history around them.”
The programs begin in early July and run through mid-August. Participants will engage in a variety of dinosaur-themed activities that will take them through the museum’s galleries and into the great outdoors. Activities range from handling real fossils at the museum to searching local sites for brand new dinosaur finds.
“Day camps are a mentally and physically stimulating opportunity that give kids a behind-the-scenes look into the world of the museum and provide an enriching environment,” says Carter. “This is an opportunity for kids to really get the most out of the resources we offer.”
Though programs won’t start until after Canada Day, spots are limited and expected to fill quickly. Interested parties can register or learn more via the museum’s website.
The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum – a 41,000 square foot world-class facility named for Canada’s preeminent palaeontologist and highlighting the rich fossil resources of Northern Alberta – opened its doors to the public on September 26, 2015. It is Canada’s second devoted dinosaur museum, and is located 19 kilometres west of the City of Grande Prairie in the Town of Wembley.
