Mammoth Hunters

Embark on a captivating journey through Earth’s prehistoric life during this week of fossil exploration. Visit the Cave of the Mounds museum in Blue Mounds, search for fossils at a local quarry, sift through anthills for tiny bones and teeth, and spend an afternoon exploring the rock formations in the valley of Bethel Horizons.

Participants of this camp will have the opportunity to go on a rock climb while learning about the area’s unique geology and the Driftless region of Wisconsin. Take a field trip to the site where the Mastodon was dug up. Start your fossil collection. Perhaps even search and discover evidence for Neanderthals on the property of Bethel Horizons. This camp is tailor-made for junior anthropologists and paleontologists. Base camp is in the comfy cabins at Forest Village.
