In honor of Archaeology Awareness Month, Fort Walla Walla Museum will be presenting an afternoon of hands-on experience for children to work as archaeologists. This day camp will be led by our on-staff historical archaeologist Ashley Morton. The participants of the camp will get practical experience surveying, mapping, and identifying artifacts. This is an exciting opportunity to show eager young minds how we learn about our past from the cultural artifacts that are recorded and analyzed by professional archaeologists.
The recommended age range for this camp is 9 through 11. Participants will cycle through a series of stations designed to teach kids how to think and work like real archaeologists.
Archaeology Kids Camp is sponsored in part by the Yancey P. Winans Trust.
