Meet the Romans, the Greeks or both this summer!

Meet the Romans

Meet the Romans introduces youth to ancient Roman civilization. Learn about gods, heroes, and monsters, gladiators and chariot-racing, and real Roman artifacts here on campus. Put on your toga and armor as you create your own Roman arts and crafts, excavate artifacts, engineer (chocolate) roads, play Roman games and sports, throw a Roman banquet, and learn some Latin, too. (Attention parents: Latin is a great way to boost advanced English vocabulary. Over 90% of English words of more than two syllables come from Latin.) Carpe Diem.

Meet the Greeks

REGISTRATION FOR THIS CAMP HAS CLOSED. NO MORE VACANCIES.

“Meet the Greeks” introduces kids to ancient Greek civilization. Learn about Greek mythology, the Olympic games, Greek warfare & daily life, and what happens to a Greek hero when he doesn’t listen to an oracle. Try wearing Greek clothing and checking out ancient toys. You will create your own Greek arts and crafts and learn a little language too. You do not have to be Percy Jackson to write your name in cool Greek letters and read simple stories in ancient Greek. (Attention parents: Greek roots abound in English, especially in technical vocabulary. They are not hard to identify, once kids know the basics, for an English vocabulary boost.)
