(July 28, 2014) -- This week, the UTSA Archaeology of Africa summer camp will give students the change to learn about the rich cultural history of the African continent, while they have fun. UTSA is San Antonio's camp destination with more than 8,500 young students and teens participating in 23 camps over the summer.

This week's archaeology camp, Archaeology of Africa, will cover familiar places such as Ancient Egypt and the Roman occupations in Africa, and unfamiliar locations including the Great Kingdom of Zimbabwe, the Kush and Ghana empires, and more. Presented by the Center for Archaeological Research Legacy program, each day of camp will be packed with presentations, hands-on activities and imaginative crafts.

Camps and academies offered through the summer include science, technology, engineering, architecture, sports, law, writing and language. The campers expand their horizons and open their minds to educational and career opportunities. For many, it is their first experience at a top-quality institution of higher education.

UTSA Athletics will continue baseball and softball camps in August. The array of sports camps includes basketball, soccer, softball, golf and football to help youth develop their skills through practice and friendly competition in a fun and challenging environment.
