Event Details

Looking for a unique camp experience for your children this summer that’s both exciting and educational?

The Institute for American Indian Studies will be offering six weeks of camp focused on the lifeways and lessons of Native Peoples!  Join experienced educators and camp staff on a journey through one, or several, of the themed weeks!

Each week, while hiking in the woods, playing games, doing crafts, and making friends, campers will work together to complete a group project.  By doing so, campers will not only learn valuable life skills, but will also have a positive impact on future visitors, students, and campers.

July 8 – 12

How do people today figure out what life was like a long time ago?  Until someone invents a time machine, we have to carefully look for clues that people in the past left behind.  These clues are all around us, if you know where to look.  Children who attend this week’s session will dig into the science behind excavations, learn about the tools and techniques archaeologists use to understand cultures of the past, and will event get the chance to visist and active archaeological site!
