Ready for Summer Camps? The PARC Museum of Genoni, in the center of Sardinia, at the foot of the Giara Park, when the school closes, is transformed into a real summer training center for small paleontologists and archaeologists.

The summer campuses are supervised by a specialized team of operators which includes, in addition to the educators, an Archaeologist and a Geologist / Paleontologist. The summer camps have a duration of one day, usually on Saturdays, of three or six days with full board. Many years of experience in the museum education sector confirms Giunone Soc Coop as a specialist in museum education and applied scientific education.

The summer campus takes place in the Genoni area, in the various museum structures managed by Giunone Soc Coop, the Giara Park and for overnight stays at the Cuaddus e Tellas farmhouse.

All activities are carried out in maximum safety and in addition to the normal company insurance towards third parties, ad hoc insurance is stipulated for each summer campus and for each date. To this end, it is always necessary to receive the duly completed registration forms.

The age ranges of children who can participate in the Summer Camps

The age ranges of children who can participate range from 7 years to 12 years.

What we do at the Little Paleontologist Summer Campus and at the Little Archaeologist Summer Campus

The educational activities of the summer camps include educational moments in the museum and outdoors. At the PARC museum, thanks to the instrumentation present in the laboratory, experiments are carried out, the simulation of cleaning of fossils and archaeological finds is carried out, fossilization, tectonics, stratigraphy and methods of dating of fossils and archaeological heritage are explained through the game.

Among the facilities of the PARC Museum, to be used during the summer camps we can list:

Vibro-engravers for cleaning fossils
Microchisels for cleaning fossils
Video projector
3d viewers
Sieves, brushes, chisels and hammers to simulate the work of paleontologists and archaeologists
Kit of the little Paleontologist-Archaeologist
Included in the camp is everything you need for campus work and continuing your study and adventure at home.
The tools to carry out the summer campus that are delivered are:

Transfer to the dormitories for the overnight stay. The rooms are equipped with a bathroom and children are accommodated in dormitories with 4/6 beds divided by gender. In the evening, an operator and an operator follow the boys and girls in their preparation for rest.
The two operators rest with the children or in the anteroom so as to be able to manage any lack of sleep or small moments of homesickness.

If the weather permits, you sleep on tents suspended in the museum park.

During the 24 hours the children are always followed by at least two operators.

How to book Summer Camps

To book the campus you can contact us by phone on +339 16 76 863, also via WhatsApp, or by e-mail: [email protected].
This is followed by the sending of the registration forms and the documents necessary to complete the procedure.

The Summer Campus is confirmed upon reaching 8 enrolled children.

The maximum number for each one-day campus is 15/20 children, for three-day campuses it is 10/12.

The reservation is complete when confirmation is sent by the campus organizers. In the event of an excessive number of requests, the group is created on the basis of the order of arrival of the complete requests accompanied by all the required documents.
Usually the operators on the phone update you on the number of enrollments for each campus and, together with the parents and the campus organization, look for the best date and group for the child.

Together with the registration forms, the list of essential things to bring and those not recommended is sent.
In addition, any allergies or precautions to be followed for each child are required.

During the camp several photos are taken both in group and individually. The images tell the children’s experience and the main moments of the activity and above all: the delivery of the Little Paleontologist or Archaeologist diploma. To this end, the release for the images is requested. The images are sent to all students at the end of the course in separate folders. If you prefer not to sign the release form, the children’s faces are obscured in group photos.

We guarantee maximum availability and professionalism to create the best experience for your children.
