Valene L. Smith on the CSU, Chico Campus offering 3 more weeks of camps.

Posted: Jul 5, 2018 7:12 PM

This is the 14th year for Summer Camp at the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology at Chico State, with different topics each week.

This week it's "Superheroes".  Next week it's "History's Mysteries"... a race against time to solve the mysteries of the past. It will feature escape room techniques and shipwreck archaeology.

Museum Curator Adrienne Scott said during an interview on Action News Now at Noon that the camps are designed to expose the fun stuff about history, with lots of crafts and activities.  She said, "Anthropology is about how humans interact with the planet and it promotes better stewardship."

Kids will learn all about sharks and the ocean during Shark Week, from July 23rd - 26th. And they will experience adventures found inside favorite books  like Harry Potter and the Magic Treehouse during "Locked in the Library" week from July 30th - August 2nd. 

There are still spots available. Contact (530) 898-5397 or visit\anthmuseum.
