Paleo Portals Virtual Summer Camp

Join Fossil Crates paleontologists for an incredible week of dinosaur facts and fun!

June 21st - 25th (Monday - Friday) 

12 - 1PM MST (12 - 1 PM Arizona Time) [GMT - 7]

Hot outside?  Join paleontologists on a dinosaur adventure in the Fossil Crates Paleo Portals Virtual Museum* from the comfort of your home.  Discover everything you wanted to know about the lives of dinosaurs, what paleontologists do, and how to become a paleontologist!

Get up close and personal with Tyrannosaurus, Spinosaurus, Triceratops, Allosaurus, and Ankylosaurus.


For a hands-on experience get your very own museum-grade casts of these wondrous dinosaurs via the Paleo Portals Virtual Summer Camp Crate.  The crate only ships within the US and contains the specific fossils Dr. BC will be discussing throughout the week. 

Conclude the week with a virtual Flaming Cliffs dinosaur hunt to discover your own virtual fossils.

By the end of this experience you will level up your dinosaur knowledge and speak like a paleontologist!
