Girls hanging out outside.
Due to the pandemic, Archaeology instructor Geof Purcell is unable to access the Aztec materials he planned on utilizing for his camp at the end of August.  Instead, he will be running the camp with a focus on the Maya, which has been a popular civilization offering in the past.

If you would like to cancel due to the subject change, please call our office at 518-456-3150,  Thank you!

COVID-19 Adjustments
  • For the safety of the campers we will make sure all campers:
  • Wear face masks
  • Maintain social distance
  • Monitor symptoms with parents
  • Frequently wash their hands
  • Each camper will be asked to comply with safety and hygiene decorum.
  • There will be abundant amounts of water, a cooling- off station and separate tables with which to keep individual finds seperated.
  • Siblings WILL work together at their distinct ends of the dig and will give way to each other by turns: at such time as proximity might otherwise happen in order to maintain social distance. (Siblings can occupy the same spaces)
  • Meals, slide presentations and artifact processing will be done apart - dig teams will be working apart for this purpose unless they are siblings
  • Instructors will be practicing all of the above as well and will be keeping a written record of any incidents
  • All tools and surfaces will be washed down each day to insure the safety of the campers (Tables, tarps, tools, artifacts)
