Dig into local history this summer at the Museum’s Summer Camp. During the week, students will learn the tools and techniques used by archaeologists to uncover historic artifacts. Then learn how museums use artifacts to understand the past and to tell stories.  

Activities will include: Use archaeological field tools; conduct an archaeological survey; document artifact finds; date coins; understand stratigraphy using the Munsell Color Chart; access to hands-on museum collections; telling stories using historic facts and objects; design a museum exhibit; and many other hands-on, creative learning experiences!
