The Museum of Anthropology will offer three one-week sessions of Traveling the Silk Road half-day summer camp: July 8 to 12, July 15 to 19, and July 22 to 26. Campers will grab a horse, camel, or even a yak, and use their imaginations to travel along the ancient trading route known as the Silk Road. Beginning in the city of Xian, China, campers will journey through the deserts and over the mountains, making stops in cities along the way, before ending their journey in Damascus, Syria. Using music, art, stories, games, and other activities, campers will learn about the goods, ideas, and people found along the Silk Road. Camp is designed for children ages 6 to 12.
The half-day camp will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for each session. The fee is $125 for the week ($100 for MOA Friends). This fee includes all supplies and daily refreshments. Each session is limited to 15 children. Registration and payment guarantees a spot. Download the registration form here.
