On Thursday, we took a walk to Nichols Arboretum where we played a Camp Explorations favorite, Oh Deer! Campers learned how the population of deer changes when resources are plentiful or scarce and the effects of predators. We also pulled out the parachute to play a quick windstorm game!

|Testing out Spinosaurus teeth!|
On the final day of camp for the year, we learned all about dinosaurs. Campers made their own sponge fossils (make sure to take them out to dry!), learned about different types of dinosaur teeth, and sorted through some famous excavation puzzles. To finish the week off, they learned a bit about different animals from the Mesozoic era and made their own timelines.

We've had such a great summer and loved meeting all of the campers! We hope to see you are the Museum soon!
