Description: "The Alexandria Archaeology Summer Camp provides an opportunity for students, ages 12 to 15, to dig the past in historic Alexandria, Virginia. Participants work directly with City Archaeologists to excavate an historic site and discover evidence of earlier times. Choose a one- or two- week session, and use science, history and geography skills to discover more about the town's history and how archaeological methods uncover the past. Participants excavate on a real archaeological site, work with their excavated artifacts in the archaeology laboratory, and take field trips and walking tours. "

This summer camp is "a great excuse to get dirty" according to the Federal Archaeology Report. If you have a child between the ages of 12-15 who is looking for something different to do this summer, then you may want to check this out.
