Do you know a curious child who is interested in science, engineering, technology or math? Dig camp will inspire youth ages 8 to 10 and 11 to 13 to investigate our human past through digital quests and hands-on activities. Campers will discover new and exciting ways to explore the world around and under them. They will understand what archaeologists can learn from an animal bone, a broken plate or a change in the color of the soil. This brand-new summer camp opportunity for 9-11 year olds is designed to inspire curiosity rooted in Michigan’s stories. Curiosity Camp will expose campers to the best Lansing has to offer, from organic farming to maker spaces to the FBI. When they’re not out on the town, campers will fill their time with a variety of curiosity-inspiring activities onsite at the Michigan History Center — breakout-boxes, design challenges, virtual reality, and more!
