Dig History Archaeology Day Camp

    Improve listing Presented by

Does your child want to be Indiana Jones?  Then DIG HISTORY! is just the summer program you are looking for.  This week-long day camp is a specially designed archaeology camp for kids ages 11 to 17. Junior archaeologists work alongside professional archaeologists to learn about survey, mapping, forensics, and excavation.  We will spend time learning about the science of archaeology and how people's trash can tell us fascinating things about the people who lived long ago.  Then, we will spend several days working at the Jeffersonian Publishing Plant site.  In 1910, Georgia statesman Thomas E. Watson built a large brick building to house his newspaper and magazine business. The structure burned and was demolished in the late 1920s.  We have been working for several years to recover the artifacts that remain from that fascinating place.  

This camp is a challenging and fun way to learn about the fascinating history of people who came before. All activities are at Hickory Hill in Thomson, Georgia.   

2013 Dates:  July 8 - 12

Time: 9:00am - 4:00pm
