Application to Join a Judith River Dinosaur Institute Program 2022

The Judith River Dinosaur Institute attracts a wide range of people who are interested in the real world of dinosaurs and being out in the great outdoors of Montana. Digging dinosaurs is often hard, tedious, intense, hot and dusty work. While we have a lot of fun on our programs, this is serious science experience. Please consider that this program is more for adults interested in science and not a kids summer “Dino Camp”.

Weeks one and two are planned for the Little Snowy Mountains 100 miles north of Billings, Montana.  This is a camp out dig experience.

This program can be for you even if you are not experienced, as long as you bring a willing attitude and will listen to staff as they train you in the proper excavation techniques. With many years of experience in paleontology, we guarantee to teach you something new and have a laugh along the way.

Note that each week is limited to 20 persons so space is limited! Don’t wait too long or we will fill up and you will miss out on a great opportunity. The two weeks for next year will involve excavations of exciting new sauropod and stegosaurus finds – a truly rare and unique experience!
