Classics Camp 2017

Monday, June 12, 2017 - 8:30am to Friday, June 16, 2017 - 4:30pm

Have you ever wanted to be a gladiator, an archeologist, or a mythical creature? Then come to Mt. Olympus and experience the glories of two of the world's greatest and most influential cultures!

The Classics Camp 2017 introduces middle- and high-school students to many different aspects of Greek and Roman antiquity, including classical Latin, ancient Greek, mythology, food, art, and history. Students will decorate their own Greek vases, excavate for buried archaeological remains, create illuminated manuscripts, design mosaics, and learn Greek and Latin etymologies. There will be numerous field trips, including tours of museum collections and a private viewing of the medieval manuscripts in the Special Collections wing of the UA Library. Campers can bring their own lunch or buy it under supervision at the Student Union, except for the last day of camp when there will be an archeological excavation and Roman Banquet.

Worlds of Antiquity Camp is for grades 7-10 and is hosted by the UA School of International Languages, Literatures and Cultures
