Camps and Carnivals!

Our summer hours are finally here! From now until Labor Day, Akron Fossils & Science Center is open Tuesday-Saturday 10 am-5 pm.

We all had so much fun kicking off our summer season with our Chronicles of Narnia carnival on June 11th! Narnia came to life at Crosspoint Alliance Church and we were blessed with beautiful weather to fully enjoy all of the games and activities!

So much hard work, planning and man hours went into this event and the results were definitely worth it.  AFSC thanks everyone who helped us transform Crosspoint Alliance from a church into WWII London and the Land of Narnia! We saw such an outpouring of generosity, hard work, and support from families, individuals, businesses, and churches and we are so thankful to each and every person that helped! We hope to see even more of the Copley community come out to enjoy our carnival next year!

As you can see, we all had a lot of fun!

We had a great time and hope to see even more come out for next year’s carnival! Akron Fossils & Science Center loves being a part of the Copley community and hopes to make our annual carnival a way for us to connect with families in the area!

Now that our summer season has officially begun, campers are beginning to arrive! Our first week of Dino Adventure camp is in full swing as campers learn all about Terrific Theropods. For this session, campers are learning about how fossils are formed, how scientists dig for fossils, rock layer formation and so much more! Already we are having so much fun seeing campers getting their hands on science and the summer has only just begun!

This summer, we have THREE exciting camp themes, so there’s a camp for ALL interests! If your child is crazy for dinos, don’t worry about missing this session, we have another Dino Adventure Camp running July 18-22! And if experimenting with science is up your alley, we have a Mad Science Camp offered July 11-15 and July 25-29. And finally, if cute critters are your thing, we have a Creature Feature Camp August 1-5th. There’s something for everyone! There’s still time to register, but slots fill up quickly! You can go to to register or pick up a form at the science center.

Another exciting addition this summer is our new line of apparel! We are so excited to add these items to our gift shop and website as a way to support the message of intelligent design in style! We have three new adult Ts and two new children’s Ts, as well as two new wristbands. Make sure to check them out next time you’re browsing our gift shop or online store!     Here’s a peek at some of the new gear!
