Roar Into Summer With Jurassic Camp At Palm Beach Museum Of Natural History

There are a variety of activities for Jurassic Camp participants.

Who wants to pet a real dinosaur? Now through Aug. 5, kids over age five are invited to become junior paleontologists, geologists and archaeologists at Jurassic Camp at the Palm Beach Museum of Natural History.

Tucked inside the Mall at Wellington Green, kids enjoy hands-on, STEAM-based multidisciplinary learning, games and activities, from identifying Ice Age fossils and Native American artifacts, to taking selfies with “Cheryll,” the museum’s 68-million-year-old Triceratops. It is the only actual dinosaur skeleton in South Florida.

Kids also take field trips around the mall, from technology workshops at Apple, cuddly bear customization at Build-A-Bear Workshop, cooking classes at California Pizza Kitchen and more.

Camp registration is $30, and weekly fees are $250. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
