Penn Museum Anthropology Camp

This summer, new world adventures await! Penn Museum Anthropology Camp, exclusively designed for children ages 6-13, who are entering grades 1-8 for the 2021-22 school year, explores the story of humans-who we are, where we came from, and how we're connected across cultures from around the world. Safeguarding your child's health while ensuring a fun, educational camp experience remains the top priority.

Penn Museum Anthropology Camp offers week-by-week adventure-seekers the opportunity to look at history from around the world. Through interactive hands-on workshops; chats with experts and researchers from the University of Pennsylvania; and private explorations through the Museum's brand-new galleries, anthropology campers safely globetrot across time and space-from Ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece to North America to Asia.

Weekly themes include engaging topics that capture the imaginations of young adventurers:

-The Olympics' origins in Ancient Greece-complete with a challenging outdoor obstacle course-and other exciting games from different cultures

-Astronomy: navigating the stars and constellations in the past

-Exploring African traditions-from the fascinating pyramids and temples of ancient Egypt to thought-provoking artwork to music from across this vast, diverse continent

-Mythical creatures and legendary tales: animals, heroes, gods, monsters, and giants and engineering marvels of the ancient past. Campers construct a model of their favorite of the "Seven Wonders of the World," while experimenting with architectural influences like Roman arches or Greek temple facades.
