 Become a junior paleontologist and hunt local beaches for fossil shark teeth, whale bones, and the shells of ancient snails and clams. Work with our professional paleontologists to uncover the mysteries of these ancient animals and the environments in which they lived. Learn collecting techniques and how to properly preserve your specimens. Keep a field journal, complete with your own drawings and observations. Get a special behind-the-scenes look at the amazing fossil collection at Calvert Marine Museum, and then excavate a section of fossil matrix using the tools and skills of a paleontologist!

 Sink your teeth in to an exciting week all about sharks! We will dive into the biology and behavior of sharks, stingrays, and other fish with engaging activities. Join CMM staff for a behind the scenes tour with a paleontologist, an up-close look at the new shark exhibit, and hands-on programs with some fantastic fish fossils. We will spend a day off-site exploring, collecting, and identifying Miocene shark teeth fossils at Flags Pond Nature Park.  At the end of the week, campers will create their own Lego shark inspired by their own knowledge and imagination. "Swim" on by and have a mega-good time with our life size Megalodon skeleton!

There will also be two special trips, one to Battle Creek Cypress Swamp and a one-hour cruise aboard the Wm.B. Tennison. Your marsh adventure awaits!
