Junior Paleontology begins sixth consecutive season

The end of the school year is steadily creeping upon us, leading to the question: what are you going to do with your kids this summer? Enter Junior Paleontology.

Junior Paleontology is a camp designed for children ages six to 12 to get some hands-on experience with rocks, fossils, history, and nature.

With the help of Cranbrook History Centre Museum Educator Michaela Eckersley along with local paleontology phenomenon Guy Santucci, as well as funding from the East Kootenay Chamber of Mines and Canada Summer Jobs, kids will get access to brand new experiences such as rock breaking, fossil making, and hands on experience with fossils of all kinds.

This is the first year since the pandemic hit in 2020 that Junior Paleo has been running at full force – and full capacity.

With 15 spots available for both the July and August week-long camps, one thing is for certain: Junior Paleontology is back like you’ve never seen it before.
