Hartgen offers youth archeological summer camps targeted at children 8 years and older. This unique service is available to organizations with missions that combine history and education.
Following a tried and true curriculum, our summer camps provide attendees with hands-on archeological experience that is both educational and fun. Following an orientation which introduces attendees to the history of the site and the tools of the archeological trade, the program covers everything from excavation to artifact identification. The program concludes with the creation of an exhibit presenting what the students have learned about the site. Camps are typically one week long.
All camps schedule for the Summer of 2013 have concluded!
The schedule for the 2014 archeological programs will be announced next Spring.
