The La Brea Tar Pits, part of the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County, and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History have partnered with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment to bring families and kids Camp Croods, based on the DreamWorks Animation family film “The Croods: The New Age.”
The two separate interactive programs will feature hands-on activities and scientific investigation to explore the Ice Age, human origins and fate of saber-toothed cats. Families will have the chance to meet real-life paleontologists and archaeologists, participate in DIY art projects, explore virtual tar pits and experience drawing demonstrations that bring the fan favorite prehistoric Croods characters to life.
“This collaboration is a great opportunity to showcase the ways in which art and science intersect while at the same time introducing families to La Brea Tar Pits, the world’s only active paleontological research facility in a major urban area,” said Lori Bettison-Varga, president and director of the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County.
Camp Croods will take place on Feb. 11 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and on Feb. 13 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Camp Croods is free, but registration is required. RSVP at tarpits.org/campcroods.
