The annual Paleo-Camp for children in pre-K through eighth grade will be held June 10-July 26 at the East Tennessee State University and General Shale Brick Natural History Museum and Visitors Center at the Gray Fossil Site. 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, make casts of bones, tie dye a T-shirt and play Fossil Feud. Several sessions for children in all age divisions will be available. Sessions range in price from $90 to $185, with discounts available for museum members and ETSU faculty and staff. Reservation forms and camp schedules can be accessed online at http://www.etsu.edu/naturalhistorymuseum. For more information, send an email to info@grayfossilsite.com or call (866)202-6223.
