Geology Archaeology Camp for KIds

Are you ready to discover the world beneath your feet? Campers aged 8-14 are invited to join Kids Dig NY for a week of geology and archaeology as we explore the ancient rock layers, fossils, and artifacts of the Ashokan Center. Campers will learn orienteering skills to guide them as they hike and canoe in search of unique landforms and hints of the past.  An authentic field experience, taught by educator Dr. Susan Paynter and archaeologist David Paynter is customized for the interests of children. The dig concludes as the artifacts and geological finds are curated for the student museum. 


July 31st- August 4th  Ashokan Center, Olivebridge, NY


The cost for one week is $300.
