Did you know that God’s glory and “awe” can be found buried under the earth like a hidden treasure?
The fossil remains of dinosaurs are those treasures waiting for us to unearth so we can give Our Creator His due glory.

T-Rex Tooth foundThese magnificent creatures are declared in Job 40 as the “Behemoth” which is “the first of the ways of God ……” These amazing extinct animals give testimony to God’s power and his true splendor being manifested so the whole world can see. No wonder dinosaurs are so popular for both young and old. 

We would like to extend an opportunity for you and your loved ones to be part of our CSI Dino Dig team. In the past we have found many different kinds of fossils including the remains of a Triceratops and T.rex in one of the most productive fossil beds in America. Embrace God’s creation in the wondrous landscapes of the badlands excavating theearth where these remarkable creatures once roamed. Learn how these dinosaurs in the past give us a unique biblical perspective providing an opportunity to become stronger in our faith. Build a long lasting relationship with others who meet together from all over the United States focused on honoring God in this unique adventure.

Join us as we partner up with Otis Kline, the director of Foundation Advancing Creation Truth (F.A.C.T) for a special, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

We sponsor this trip once a year and offer you the opportunity to find, excavate, plaster, remove and prepare REAL DINOSAUR BONES! You will be trained by professionals and learn incredible truths about our Creator. Come experience 4 days and 5 nights of meaningful fellowship, delicious meals, and exciting hands-on education.

Guests can choose to reserve either a campsite or near-by hotel room for overnight accommodations.
