EnCana Badlands Science Camp
Live the dream.
Learn basic geology, prospect for real dinosaur fossils, and contribute to the ongoing research at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology by participating in amazing hands-on science projects. Do all this while sleeping in old-style prospector tents in the breathtaking Alberta badlands.
Encana Badlands Science Camp offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young scientists to get a taste of real palaeontology. Each camp is geared to meet the expectations and abilities of youth aged 9-12 and 13-16 years. And our Citizen Science Family Camp allows parents to share their love for ancient Alberta with their own children.
