The El Paso Museum of Archaeology will hold their annual archaeology day camp for children seven to twelve years old this summer. Children must have completed first grade and be at least seven years old. Camps fill quickly; those interested should contact the museum as soon as possible. The choice of dates is subject to availability.

The camp registration fee is $55 for El Paso Museum of Archaeology members and $70 for non-members. Registration is accepted on a first-come first-served basis as attendance is limited to twelve students per camp. For information and the camp registration form contact the museum at 915-755-4332 or guidamr@elpasotexas.gov.

Archaeology Summer Day Camp is an interactive, hands-on course held on the museum’s grounds and in the galleries with a field trip (to be announced). The program is designed to educate participants about the science of archaeology, its tools, and the prehistory of the Americas, especially the El Paso-Ju├írez region, from the Ice Age to European contact. Campers will learn respect and appreciation for prehistoric, historic and contemporary Indian people.

The museum is seeking volunteers with experience teaching elementary and middle school students to assist with archaeology summer camp. Training for volunteers will be held in early June.
