Junior Archaeologist Summer Camp Session 1

Time: 9:00 am til 3:00 pm

Location: Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, 1800 Weedon Dr NE, St Pete

Description: Alliance for Weedon Island Archaeological Research and Education (AWIARE) in partnership with Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) will again hold two “Hands on Weedon” archaeology camps at Weedon Island during the summer of 2017. These camps are designed for students interested in exploring the past. All camps are conducted by professional archaeologists, including educators from FPAN and allow kids to experience archaeology first-hand through activities, experiments, hikes, and even a real excavation.

This summer camp is designed for children with a strong interest in prehistory and history as well as in learning how early people interacted with their environment. Campers will learn about the importance of archaeology and will gain understanding about early natural resources that were necessary for life in the Tampa Bay region. Highlights of the camp include guest experts, tour of an archaeological site, hands-on archaeology, lab analysis, pottery making, atlatl adventure and earning the certificate of Tommy the Tortoise, Junior Archaeologist.
