2023 Summer Camp - Archaeology 101 and 201

During these week-long summer camps, children ages 9 to 13 will participate in outdoor and indoor activities while exploring archaeological discoveries, methods, ethics, and more. There are two different themes for the summer camps. Archaeology 101 (sessions 1 & 3) will introduce campers to archaeology and build on learned skills through experimental activities (like cave painting, weaving, and garbology). Archaeology 201 (sessions 2 & 4) will briefly go over the foundations of archaeology and related skills, followed by a different topic over the course of this week (like skeletal analysis, global cultures, and more).The camp will be held at the Center for Archaeological Research located on UTSA’s 1604 Campus and the camp is staffed by the Center’s archaeologists, interns, and volunteers.

Previous Camp Reviews

Here's what some of our reviewers had to say about camp!

“The counselors never talked down to the kids, presented sophisticated material in interesting ways that kids could understand.”
Parent, On child's camp experience
“Great staff. Very caring. My daughter loved her teachers & wanted them to teach at her new middle school.”
Parent, On child's camp experience
“At first, I wasn’t too excited about going to a boring camp over Spring break. But on the first day I was proven wrong. I can’t think of a better way to have spent my break. The counselors are awesome and really nice. We had fun activities like making masks and miniature coffins. Thank you Legacy Camp!”
