Archaeology Dig for Kids! Best Kids Summer Camps in Chester County!

Archaeology Half-Day Camp 8 to 16 year olds in Chester Springs

KIDS SUMMER CAMPS: ARCHAEOLOGY 
Archaeology Dig for Kids: August 19 – 23

Registration is open for our popular Archaeology Dig for Kids at Historic Yellow Springs is for kids ages 8 to 16 years. Be ready to get dirty as you work with a trained archaeologist and learn to survey the site, excavate and sift soil to uncover artifacts, track daily progress, map and record findings. The children 11 to 16 years initiate the digging, completing the more physical work and learn to survey, excavate, sift, map and record their findings. The younger children, 8 to 10 years, continue with sifting, sorting and recording finds from the morning. Each age group learn the same set of skills and share in the process of discovery.

The village of Historic Yellow Springs spans over 275 years of American history. The village has been home to the Lenape Native Americans, site of the first military hospital built during the Revolutionary War, an orphan's school after the Civil War, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Country School and location of the Good News Productions film studio. With the focus on history, art, education and the environment, Historic Yellow Springs continues to enrich the lives of all who come here. The unique history of the village makes it a prime location for archaeological digs.
