Hello Dinosaur Hunters,

This summer will be our tenth year at the Lemmon South Dakota Dig. This is an exciting and beautiful site on the banks of the Grand River with rolling prairie stretching off to the Badland buttes. We were excavating an Edmontasaurus as well as visiting a marine fossil site. We depend upon you folks to help our ministry by sending this on to others on your e mail list. We are allowed about 25 campers per week and God blessed us with all camp slots filled last year. It was because many of you helped by telling others about our Mobile Creation Science Camp.

Though most digs allow only older students and adults to dig, we let every age level excavate. The dinosaur dig is an opportunity for the whole family to not only dig dinosaurs, but have good Christian fellowship and activities, too. For this camp, we will send out a 100 page manual/curriculum before the dig so you can practice dig techniques in your backyard. All camps have morning and evening classes with relevant lessons on creation science related to the area we are exploring. We also visit museums, other digs, and other historical and geological features in the area. Often crafts, water slides, swimming, rodeos, and other events can be attended during free time. There is something for everyone and all ages.

We need to know if you are interested so we can plan for materials, teachers, and dig sites. We dig on dinosaurs such as Edmontosaurus, Triceratops, Hadrosaurus (duck bill) and others. Both electricity and water are available at the ranch camp site.

You provide your own tent or trailer, and food. Motels are available in Lemmon 40 miles away or some ranch homes are available. Ask us about a bed-and-breakfast that is available in the area. Time can be spent in the beautiful, historic Black Hills on your way to and from the camp.
