. . . Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. (1 Peter 3:15, ESV)

Join us as we examine dating methods, fossils, and dinosaurs from a biblical worldview. The evidence from a biblical worldview clearly shows that the earth is young, and Noah’s global flood buried organisms creating the vast majority of fossils just a few thousand years ago.

Open to students ages 11 to 18.

Explore Fossils is a three-hour program scheduled from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Explore Days program is on a four-year rotating schedule. Each Explore Day includes a minimum of four hands-on, interactive sessions. The yearly topics are provided in the schedule below.

Please keep in mind that some of our activities are contingent upon weather.
