Ancient Adventures Camp (Ages 9-10)
If you’ve ever wanted to be a time traveler or treasure hunter, then the X on your map is right on the Ancient Adventures camp. Here you’ll explore the great civilizations of the past, seek out their treasures, learn from their innovations, and make friends with fellow ancient adventurers. Each session will explore an amazing element of the ancient world, plus highlight specific civilizations and their everyday life; campers will also perform Treasure Challenges in the Learning Lab and embark on everyday treasure hunts of their own.
Exploration 1: The Wonders of The World -- Ancient civilizations left us plenty to remember them by, including the Seven Wonders of the World. Today we’ll explore those wonders and examine why we remain so fascinated with our ancient ancestors. Civilization Spotlight: Mesopotamia & Egypt
Exploration 2: Magical Myths & Legends -- So much of our world is inspired by ancient myths, from our fairy tales and superheroes to the names of planets and stars. Today we’ll explore the legends of the ancient world and see how common they are in our daily lives. Civilization Spotlight: China & India
Exploration 3: A Time Machine Treasure Hunt -- Much of the modern world looks the way it does because kings, queens, and adventurers alike explored the seas in search of ancient treasure.

Exploration 4: Incredible Innovations That Lasted -- Ancient thinkers and inventors were far ahead of their time; in fact, much of what they invented is still in use today.
