UTSA archaeology center offers popular camps

(April 2, 2004)--The UTSA Center for Archaeological Research once again offers the popular Legacy outreach program summer camps for children between the ages of six and eleven. This year's theme is "Telling the Alamo Story."

Campers will participate in mock digs, see living history demonstrations, make period crafts and tour the Alamo.

To accommodate busy family schedules, four camps are scheduled at the center on the UTSA 1604 Campus. Camps for ages 6-8 are June 14-18 and July 12-16. Camps for ages 9-11 are June 21-25 and July 19-23.

Camp hours for all dates are 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. The cost of $190 includes supplies, snacks and the 2004 camp T-shirt.

The cost is reduced to $170 for children of UTSA faculty and staff.

The Legacy outreach program is entering its ninth year of serving the community in educational support. Legacy offers school presentations, laboratory tours, career day speakers and other services highlighting CAR's commitment to archaeological preservation and research.
