Dinosaur Train Nature Trackers Adventure Camp

"Nature Trackers Adventure Camp,” an all-new, PBS KIDS one-hour special from The Jim Henson Company’s hit series DINOSAUR TRAIN will premiere on WPT at 7am on Monday, January 20. Kids will follow Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don in four exciting new stories as they travel to different ecosystems and learn about erosion, tree lines, rainforests and canyons. 

Mr. Conductor and his nephew Gilbert lead Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, Don and friends on an action-packed journey during “Nature Trackers Adventure Camp.” Throughout their adventures at camp, the group finds courage as they race down rivers, have a snowball fight, climb a tall mountain, ride a zipline over the rainforest and hike down a canyon to dig for fossils! Viewers won’t be able to resist tapping their feet and singing along as the whole gang makes discoveries about the world around them.

PBS KIDS will feature clips and full stories from “Nature Trackers Adventure Camp” online at pbskids.org/video, on the free PBS KIDS Video App and on the PBS KIDS Roku channel. DINOSAUR TRAIN’s website will also re-launch in mobile-friendly HTML5 in mid-January, along with a new game: “River Run!” In this two-player racing game, Buddy and Don paddle through the river collecting insects for Don’s ever-growing collection. Players will learn about river currents and insects as they race to the finish line.
