State Historical Society's archaeology camp registration opens Thursday

PIERRE — The South Dakota State Historical Society's Historic Preservation Office is sponsoring a three-day archaeology camp for students going into grades 4-6 for the 2014-2015 school year.

Camp will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on June 3-5. The program is structured for students to attend all three days. Registration is limited to the first 20 applicants, first-come, first-served.

Archaeology camp is an active, outdoor experience located on the old Fort Galpin archaeological site near the Oahe Downstream Recreation Area below the Oahe Dam north of Pierre. Students should be prepared to hike and to work in the dirt alongside of professional archaeologists.

Registration begins Thursday and closes May 12, or when the camp is full, whichever comes first.
