The Binghamton University Community Archaeology Program (CAP) announces three archaeology summer camps: Kids (10-12), Teens (13-17) and Adults. Dates are July 15-19 (9 a.m.-4 p.m.). Participants will learn about Susquehanna Valley archaeology, assist archaeologists with the excavation of a local research site, and experience the preservation of local heritage. Archaeologists from the Public Archaeology Facility at Binghamton University will provide instruction in basic archaeological and lab techniques. Supervised excavations will be based at the 4,000-year-old Boland Campville prehistoric site on the Susquehanna River within the Town of Owego.
Cost is $175 for the Adult and Teen programs, $169 for the Kids program. Two scholarships are available (teacher recommendation needed).
