  • Description - Museum of Western Colorado

    Dino Digs - Dig for dinosaurs and search for new bones and tracks in the colorful, 150-million-year-old badlands of the Morrison Formation. We offer half-day digs as well as one-day digs at sites in western Colorado. To our multi-day expeditions we added a new three-day experience (with a raft trip!) in addition to the five-day expedition that ventures into eastern Utah. Summer Camp - Some of the cool things we do in camp are arts and crafts, build bird houses and make parachutes. We learn about old-timey transportation and the cool antique trucks and tractors we have at Cross Orchards. Or maybe we'll learn about archaeology and go on bug hunts. Some of the old-time chores we'll experience are cooking (on a woodstove!), laundry the old-fashioned way, quilt making, agriculture, irrigation and gardening. But don't worry, we have FUN when we learn how folks way back when did these those chores. We play old time games like jacks and marbles, and sometimes pan for gold, press flowers and check out old time photographs. We'll have hay wagon rides, story times and crank ice-cream by hand! And, on the last day, we'll celebrate with an ice cream social and you can show your families playing marbles at Cross Orhcards summer camparound the site. Could camp be any better?!
