Dirt Camp

Dirt Camp
Day Camp

Ages 10-12 | $295

Get your hands dirty this summer in Garden of the Gods! Grab a shovel and dig into underground ecosystems. Learn about rocks and minerals of the Pikes Peak region. Split shale from a fossil quarry and find fossils to keep. Visit Cave of the Winds for a tour of dripping crystals and growing rocks.  Leave your mark on Garden of the Gods Park, where each day will include a few hours of soil conservation project work with the Rocky Mountain Field Institute. We might build a rock wall, or install a water diversion bar. Who knows what we will get into! At the end of the week, students will be able to share what they’ve learned with their parents during an ice cream social. Come play in the dirt with us this summer at Garden of the Gods!
