Crow Canyon Archaeological Center—Summer Field School for Teens



Students in this hands-on introduction to archaeology spend up to three weeks exploring the Mesa Verde region of southwestern Colorado. After studying the history of the Pueblo Indians, boys and girls join teams of professional archaeologists at a working excavation site and learn to sort and identify artifacts. Pupils gain knowledge about the culture and the lifestyles of the ancestral people through games, concerts, crafts and discussions. Scholarships are available to American Indian students, as well as to those from the Four Corners region.
