Camp starts and concludes at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center and archaeology work will be conducted at the Pearson family property. For students going into grades 4-6; 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; $45 for members and $55 for non-members (includes sales tax); price includes a camp t-shirt. Reservations required.
