Summer Camp








Check back for 2016 dates!

Children interested in paleontology, science, art and nature are invited to participate in the annual Paleo-Camp at the ETSU & General Shale Natural History Museum & Gray Fossil Site.

Scheduled for June and July, 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.” Each camp section will also have plenty of age-appropriate activities..

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. located 1.8 miles off Exit 13 on Interstate 26. For more information, or for special assistance, call (866) 202-6223 or visit the museum at
