Camp Croods at La Brea Tar Pits Virtual Field Trip

Camp Croods at La Brea Tar Pits Virtual Field Trip

Since most in-person events and activities are still on hold I was excited to be invited on an interactive virtual field trip—Camp Croods at La Brea Tar Pits, to celebrate the release of THE CROODS: A NEW AGE on Digital (available now) and on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD February 23. 

This fun virtual event is brought to you by the National History Museums of Los Angeles County and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment with DreamWorks Animation.

If you love THE CROODS as much as I do, you\’re in for a big treat. Camp Croods at La Brea Tar Pits will take you on a scientific exploration of the Ice Age through hands-on activities, you\’ll meet real life paleontologists, make virtual Tar Pits discovers, participate in drawing demonstrations that bring your favorite Croods characters to life, and so much more. Reservations are required, and they are FREE 

I had so much fun and thought you might like the details on this fun virtual field trip. 

What is Camp Croods?
Camp Croods is inspired by The Croods: A 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 (La Brea Tar Pits camp), take a virtual tour of the Human Origins exhibition (NMNH camp), and experience drawing demonstrations that bring the fan-favorite prehistoric Croods characters to life.

The first prehistoric family is ready for another rocking adventure! The Croods have survived fanged beasts, natural disasters, and even young love, but now they must face their biggest challenge yet: another family! In search of a new home, the Croods discover a walled-in paradise created by the sophisticated Betterman family (emphasis on the “better”). As they try to coexist, the differences between the two families escalate into a full-blown feud, but when a new threat forces both families to embark on an epic adventure, they must all learn to work together…or they’ll all go extinct! Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clarke Duke, Cloris Leachman, Leslie Mann, Peter Dinklage and Kelly Marie Tran star in this hilarious animated comedy for the whole family!
