Dr. David Clark is a professional archaeologist, public-archaeology outreach specialist, and educator with extensive national and international experience. Dr. Clark leads this hands-on camp for middle schoolers interested in archaeology. Campers will discover "what lies beneath" the grounds at Oatlands, learn about the proper way to conduct archaeology, see lots and lots of bones, and come away with a new respect and understanding of archaeology.
Here are some quotes from parents who sent their children to camp:
“My son loved the camp and was sad to see it end. Price of camp is very reasonable. Thank you for a great camp!”
“My son has attended camps in the past and has always loved them. We plan to continue participating in the future. Everyone is always kind, caring, and helpful! Each camp he learned something new. Excellent!”
“We were so happy with the camp. My son adored Dr. Clark. He was so good with the kids and really inspired my son. We have told everyone how wonderful the camp was so expect more people for next year!”
“I just want to say thank you, for a wonderful week of camp. My daughter was in Dr. Clark’s archeology camp this week, and I truly believe she has had the best time of her life. She is probably going to cry when she leaves today. That said, she has loved every minute and definitely wants to come back next year! Thank you again and have a wonderful summer.”
