Learn hands-on what it takes to be an archaeologist!
This STEM-based camp, generously funded by Alliant Energy, was originally to be offered to students in grades 3 through 5 in May of 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the in-person camps were canceled and this online version of the camp is now offered FREE to any students, teachers, and families who are interested! The Historic Indian Agency House and Alliant Energy are committed to serving our community and supporting teachers and families in their educational endeavors. Please enjoy this educational opportunity with our compliments!
