East Block, Rock Creek Campground
Spend a day uncovering the secrets of ancient dinosaurs, then get dancing under the stars at a country hoedown. The Badlands were the site of one of the first discoveries of dinosaur fossils in Canada, and scientists today continue to unlock the mystery of a time when prehistoric creatures wandered the jungle on what is now the Canadian Prairie.
As part of the five-day Fossil Fever event, small groups get a hands-on lesson as they accompany a crew of paleontologists from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and McGill University on a day’s dig. Wild scenery, lunch in the badlands and five hours of finding hidden gems such as fossils are all included. Wind down enjoying a hot chocolate beneath the spectacular night sky as you watch the glowing campfire embers.
Cost: $73.60 per person per day
Lunch and shuttle included.
