BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – A camp in Boardman is teaching students about archaeology with the help of Youngstown State University.
The students at the Boardman Park Adventure Day Camp are split up by grade level to learn more about history. Instead of textbook lessons, the children are able to have hands-on experiences with skulls and bones.
The YSU archaeology department gave more than 100 students some history lessons on Thursday.
“I think that a lot of times in schools, it is a little bit overlooked, especially anthropology. Kids just don’t really get any experience,” YSU Anthropology Program President Olivia Johnson said.
The Boardman Park Adventure Day Camp is nine weeks long and ends in mid-August. Students have a different theme every week, from science to creative arts.
The camp still has open enrollment.
