A series of four Kids Day Camps on archaeology start June 23 at Wickliffe Mounds State Historic Site.

The camps, also scheduled for June 30, July 7 and July 14, are open to kids ages 9-11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each of these four days.

These exciting and educational summer day camps will provide children hands-on learning experiences about archaeology. The four camp sessions will provide interactive activities about the methods and practices of archaeology at a kids level, a guided tour of the site, making clay pots, excavating in a simulated archaeological dig, identifying artifacts, playing Native American games and demonstrations of primitive lifeways.

The fee is $25 per child. If a child attends two or more camps, the fee for the subsequent camp is $20. Those who attend will also receive a gift bag with certificate.

Registration is required, so call early to save your spot.  To register, call the park office at 270-335-3681.  Wickliffe Mounds State Historic Site is located at 94 Green Street, Wickliffe, KY 42087.  Visit our website at
