World Cultures Summer Camp
As anthropologists in the making, Museum campers get their hands sticky making masks.
The Education Department of the Museum of Archeology and Anthropology will run seven one-week summer camp programs for children ages 8-12.
Each week, children will be immersed in a different world culture through a combination of music, theatrics, art projects, gallery tours, dance workshops, storytelling, costume making and behind-the-scenes discussions with archaeologists, anthropologists and Museum professionals. Afternoons are set aside for recreation and outdoor activities, and Penn students will serve as camp counselors. The programs are:
The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and costs $125 per week for Museum
members and $150 for non-members. Membership costs $45 per year for an individual
and $50 for a household. There is also pre-camp, 8-9 a.m. ($25) and post-camp,
3-5 p.m. ($50) supervision available. To register, call (215) 898-6423 or
