This summer children are invited to uncover the mysteries of history and discover the cultures of the world at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology at The University of New Mexico. The Maxwell is offering two unique summer camp programs to keep children curious and engaged.  

June 18 - 22, campers will time travel into the past and discover the wonders of the ancient world in the Archaeology of Ancient Civilizations camp. This STEM based camp will investigate ancestral Puebloan, ancient Chinese, Egyptian and Maya societies through hands-on exploration of material culture. This camp is for kids ages 10 – 12.

A discovery of diverse world cultures is on tap July 16 – 20, in the Wonders of World Cultures camp. Campers will understand and appreciate the customs and traditions of people from around the world by experiencing them through drama, storytelling, music and art. This camp is for kids ages 7-9.

The Maxwell enlists content experts and artists from the University and New Mexico communities to create an engaging learning space where campers can explore and discover. All activities take place on the UNM campus at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology and Hibben Center for Archaeological Research.
