Staff Report • Jun 13, 2013 at 10:58 PM


The annual Paleo-Camp for children in pre-K through eighth grade will be held through 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.
