Our Junior Science Camps are the opportunity of a lifetime for young scientists to get a taste of real palaeontology and have tons of fun in a safe, well-supervised environment. Campers will prospect for dinosaurs, screen wash and sort real fossils, learn about field jacket preparation, and discover palaeontology under the guidance of staff developed through the Badlands Science Camp Leadership Program.


Please Note: 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the guidelines issued by Alberta Health Services, Badlands Science Camp 2021 will be offered in a day camp format instead of the traditional overnight experience.

Parents of participants must be informed of our COVID-19 Protocols.

Two-day and five-day camps will be offered for Junior Campers. One of the two-day Junior Camp sessions will include one parent per child cohort to participate. View sample activities.
