Summer Camp


This summer, uncover the past and learn about cultures of the world at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology! We offer a unique summer camp program that will keep children curious and engaged. 

Led by experts and artists from New Mexico communities, campers will explore the scientific principles of anthropology and archaeology and learn about diverse artistic traditions. 

Participants in this one-week camp will get to:

• Explore the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology exhibits and collections, including behind-the-scenes tours and sessions with museum experts

• Make and play musical instruments from around the world

• Learn about human ancestors and study fossils with practicing paleontologists

• Participate in a mock archaeological dig 

And much more!

A minimum enrollment is needed for the camp to run. Limited spaces are available: min-12, max-16 children. If the camp is cancelled by the museum, a full refund will be given.
