Brief Description of Camp
Archaeology Summer Day Camp is an interactive, hands-on course held on the museum’s grounds and in the galleries with a field trip. For ages 7-9 the field trip is being planned. For ages 10 to 12 the field trip will be to Hueco Tanks State Park. The program is designed to educate participants about the science of archaeology, its tools, and the prehistory of the Americas, especially the El Paso-Juárez region, from the last Ice Age to European contact. Campers will learn respect and appreciation for prehistoric, historic and contemporary Indian people. For complete details of camp activities see the registration form, for children 7 to 9 see page 6, for children 10 to 12 see page 7.
If weather prevents outdoor activities, alternative indoor activities will be held. Be prepared by wearing sun screen, sturdy shoes (no sandals), protective clothing, insect repellant, and a hat for the outdoor activities. Each participant should bring their own snacks and beverages. Children must have completed first grade and be at least 7 years old. Children must attend the first day of camp in order to be prepared for days 2-4. For complete details of payment see registration form.
