Participate in summer camp fun from your own home: enjoy a free themed kit of activities that will allow young learners to make the most of their home environment through crafts, experiments, short videos, games, and more.

Do you want to be an archaeologist? Do you like to get your hands dirty? Learn about the important work archaeologists do, then become an archaeologist in your own backyard! Discover which tools are used by archaeologists and pack a supply bag to take into the field. Learn about stratigraphy, then create your own map. Create a mock dig, learn to think like an archaeologist, and piece together your findings.
