Digging & Activities

Digging up dinosaur bones that haven’t seen the light of day since Noah’s Flood is fun! The digging happens on the side of a cliff. Bones are plentiful and you are sure to discover something! You will also get to learn hands-on how to prepare dinosaur bones! Daily group lessons will focus on dinosaurs, creation science, and how what we are finding in the field points to God’s design and Noah’s Flood. Additional activities include hikes, campfire, kids’ movie night, and more!


Camping area has one outhouse, fridge & freezer. We will drive to a nearby building to have meals together. Inside this building there are two bathrooms with showers and hot running water. Families can drive to this building to use the showers. There is also one small cabin is available for rent. The cabin has a queen bed and a twin bed in a single room plus a bathroom with hot running water and a shower.
