At Camp Huguenot, you won’t just learn about archaeology—you’ll do it!
Campers will work alongside real archaeologists, searching for artifacts left behind by the original Huguenot settlers and the Native Americans who came before them.
Campers will spend time conducting a live dig by excavating, cleaning, and cataloging their archaeological finds. Through these activities they will learn the basic principles and practices of archaeology, as well as its modern day significance and relation to the understanding of past cultures.
Additional time will be spent on historic crafts, indoor and outdoor games, related educational activities, local field trips, and tours of the historic site. The week concludes with a camper-created exhibit of the artifacts found during their dig, which all participants and family members are invited to attend.
