Hey, Young Adults: Can You Dig It?

9 Jun , 2019  

The Delaware County Historical Society has announced its second summer camp of 2019.

Following its successful summer camp experience earlier this month looking at history through the lens of cemeteries, the Society is offering kids the opportunity to indulge in a bit of local archaeology.

Those aged 8 through 14 are invited to “Can You Dig It? Adventures in Archaeology” to be held the week of July 29 from Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM. This camp, managed by Ohio Valley Archaeology Inc., will teach campers all aspects of excavation on the grounds of the Meeker Homestead at 2690 Stratford Road in Delaware.

The camp fee is $140 and includes a t-shirt, water, snacks, handouts and teaching materials. Registration deadline is July 19.
