Dig History**


June 6th - June 10th 2016


In DIG History! kids experience how archaeologists investigate the past. They explore ancient hunting methods, learn what our garbage says about us, and work alongside professional archaeologists to learn about forensic methods to solve crimes.

 

Campers MUST love being outdoors, science-y stuff, and being dirty to enjoy this camp!  Space is limited to 12 participants.


Excavation takes place at the Jeffersonian Publishing Plant site (9MF914). The site is where Thomas E. Watson built a publishing plant back in 1910. Nothing remains of the plant on the surface, so it is the job of our Junior Archaeologists to find what remains below the surface.


The Particulars:
WHO: Children ages 11 to 17 years (camper must have turned 11 before camp begins)
WHAT: A week-long DAY camp program
WHEN: 9:00am—4:00pm, Monday through Friday

WHERE: All camps take place on the grounds of Hickory Hill, 502 Hickory Hill Drive, Thomson, GA

COST: $60 per week per child
