Universal Home Entertainment is celebrating the digital and upcoming Blu-Ray/DVD release of their film – The Croods: A New Age. In a partnership with La Brea Tar Pits, part of the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County (NHMLAC), and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), Universal is giving kids and their families a chance to attend “Camp Croods”.
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 Croods: A New Age is available to own on Digital now and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray™ and DVD February 23, 2021, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Join in on all the saber-toothed cat-sized excitement in our FREE virtual event, Camp Croods at La Brea Tar Pits brought to you by the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment with DreamWorks Animation.
Go on a scientific exploration of the Ice Age through hands-on activities, meet real-life paleontologists, make virtual Tar Pits discoveries, participate in drawing demonstrations that bring your favorite Croods characters to life, and so much more!

ABOUT THE CROODS: A NEW AGE
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!
The Camp Croods is a perfect opportunity to spend time with the family on a virtual field trip. It’s also a great way to learn about the history of man. Be sure to sign up for one of the sessions at the La Brea Tar Pit and the one at the National Museum of Natural History.
