Dino camps are back—fun, friends and adventure awaits!

Get up-close to real paleontology collections this summer at the Burke Museum, home of Washington’s only real dinosaur fossils! Campers will participate in hands-on dig investigations, create dino crafts to take home, go on behind-the-scenes tours of the museum, listen to stories about ancient animals, and visit with researchers—all while having fun on the beautiful University of Washington campus.

Summer camp registration will open in late February.
