Science. History. Anthropology. Deductive reasoning. Archaeology demands a lot of its devotees, but the payoffs can be epic, ranging from life-changing discovery to a new appreciation for very old cultures. If your child roams your backyard with a shovel, combs riverbeds for arrowheads, or dreams of being the next Indiana Jones, then our archeology day-camp may be just the break that your child — and your lawn — needs!
The Abingdon Glebe Archaeology Day Camp in Gloucester may be just the ticket (for an application, see below). Located at the historic Abingdon Glebe house, the camp offers children from fourth through sixth grades the opportunity to help excavate at the Abingdon Glebe historic site. The camp will run from Monday, June 18th through Wednesday, June 20th. The last day of the camp includes a field trip to the ongoing archaeological excavations at Jamestown. The camp begins at 10AM and ends at 3PM each day. The cost is $20 payable to St. James Anglican Church. Lunch will not be provided, so please pack your child’s lunch.
The camp is a joint project of St. James Anglican Church and the Fairfield Foundation. To register, please contact Fr. Kevin Sweeney at (804)824-9552 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org for a registration form.
The camp will take place at St. James Anglican Church which is located off of Route 17 in Gloucester behind Ken Houtz Chevrolet.
