  • - Children interested in paleontology, science, art and nature are invited to participate in the annual Paleo-Camp at the East Tennessee State University and General Shale Brick Natural History Museum and Visitors Center at the Gray Fossil Site.

    Scheduled for June, Paleo- Camp allows children to explore paleontology in the field and lab at the five-acre Gray Fossil Site as well as the museum and education center.

    Campers will dig at the fossil site to find fossils, rocks and minerals, wet-screen for micro-fossils and identify them in the lab, and make casts of bones. Each camp section will also have plenty of age-appropriate activities.

    “Paleo-Camp is a unique summer camp offering and a great way to expose children of all ages to science and hands-on application,” said Maegan Beale, education coordinator. “The interactive nature of the fossil site allows for campers to be fully immersed in the science they learn.”

    Several sessions for children from pre-K all the way through 8th grade are available.
