(Aug. 11, 2014) -- This week, the last of the UTSA Archaeology of Africa summer camps will give students the change to learn about the rich cultural history of the African continent, while they have fun.
And, the Athletics department will involve young athletes in softball camp. UTSA is San Antonio's camp destination with more than 8,500 young students and teens participating in 23 camps over the summer.
The Archaeology of Africa, will cover the familiar Ancient Egypt and 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 at 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 wind down its summer activities with softball camp this week. 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.
