This camp is presented by Hartgen Archeological Associates in cooperation with CNSE CMOST
Campers will dig into local history, uncovering buried artifacts from The Rensselaer Tech Park’s historic site in North Greenbush, NY. Following a tried and true curriculum, this camp provides attendees with hands-on archeological experience that is both educational and fun. Following an orientation which introduces attendees to the history of the site and the tools of the archeological trade, the program covers everything from excavation to artifact identification. The program concludes with the creation of an exhibit that shows what the students have learned about the site.
