Discover your next adventure this summer as we explore and learn about dinosaurs! – Check back in the spring for information on Summer 2021 Camps!


We know that summer camps are where some of the best childhood memories are made so we want to make sure no kid who signs up will have to miss out. Each camp has been designed to be offered safely in-person at the museum or as a virtual camp. If your child is unable to attend the camp in person due to illness or personal preference, or if we are unable to run in-person camps due to the return of Covid-19 restrictions, we will deliver camp kits that allow them to follow along and engage with the camp community from home. This means that if your camper has to stay home or leave part-way through the camp, they will still have the much needed opportunity to interact with new friends and to learn about the dinosaurs they love.

View our Summer 2020 camps below! Please send any summer camp inquires to:
