Ark Encounter General Admission Not RequiredPricing & Registration
. . . 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 years of age.
Explore Fossils is a three-hour program scheduled from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Due to parking and bus transportation to the Ark Encounter, recommended arrival time is 12:30 p.m.
The Explore Days program is on a four-year rotating schedule. Each Explore Day includes a minimum of three 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.
Availability is limited, so sign up today!
