Each summer the York County Heritage Trust partners with the York County Department of Parks and Recreation to offer a unique Archaeology Camp. Students ages 10-13 are exposed to the basics of archaeology first-hand as they participate in actual excavations at real archaeological sites. Campers also learn about how artifacts are preserved and interpreted in a museum setting with visits to Trust sites and museums. TheTrust runs programs during each session to educate participants about the relevant history and time period highlighted at each dig site.
