Badlands Science CampJunior Science Camp

This is no ordinary summer camp.

Imagine waking up in an old-style prospector tent, prospecting for dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, screen washing and sorting real fossils, and learning all about the science of palaeontology. Our week-long Junior Science Camps provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young scientists to experience the world-renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum, work with real fossils, explore historical sites, and have tons of fun in a safe, well-supervised environment.
