PALEO DAY CAMPS OFFER FUN AND LEARNING TOO!
Fridays, July 29 and August 5
The Calvert Marine Museum is offering Paleo Day Camp for two age groups. Students entering 6th – 8th grade are invited on Friday, July 29 and students entering 5th grade are invited on Friday, August 5 to become a paleontologist for a day. Campers will experience science by digging in and discovering answers for themselves from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Snacks and water provided; campers bring their own lunch. Fee is $25. Pre-registration required. Call 410-326-2042 ext. 41 to register today.
This action-filled day includes learning to find and identify fossils at Cove Point beach, a behind the scenes visit to the museum’s fossil prep lab, a chance to see our 3-D printer re-creating a Megalodon tooth, and a visit to our amazing behind-the-scenes fossil collections. Campers will play Fossil Monopoly to learn just how challenging it is to become a fossil, and explore some of the problems paleontologists face in their work.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $9.00 for adults, $7.00 for seniors, military with valid I.D. and AAA members, and $4.00 for children ages 5 - 12; children under 5 and museum members are always admitted free.
