Idabel, OK (May 29, 2018)—Staff at the Museum of the Red River are bracing for a record number of Dino Camp (ages 4 to 8) attendees, one of its annual summer programs. The predicted increase is based on several factors including the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. According to Christina Eastep, Head of Programs, “whenever a movie about dinosaur comes out, attendance goes up”. The camp has also become increasingly popular in the past few years. Last year’s camp attracted a record number of attendees—fifty-two on the first day. Eastep noted that this year, parents were signing their children up for Dino Camp as early as January.
In order to meet the predicted increase in demand, Museum will have two Dino Camps. The first will run from July 9 to July 11, 9 am to noon. The second camp will run on July 9 to July 11, from 1 pm to 4 pm. Both sessions cost $45 and are capped at twenty-five attendees each. This year’s Dino Camp will focus on the disappearance of dinosaurs. Planned activities include building a volcano, “excavating” fossils, creating dinosaur costumes, and making a dinosaur-themed diorama. Registration is available in the Museum Store, over the phone (580.286.3616) or online.
