Explorers Camp will run from June 18 to June 22, 9 am to 3 pm each day. Dino Camp will last from July 10 to July 12. Registration for Explorers Camp is now available. However, registration for Dino Camp is not. Enrollment will begin after its itinerary is finalized.

Summer Explorers (ages 8 to 12) allows children to immerse themselves in different cultures in a fun, safe, and engaging environment. This year, campers will learn about the rich and varied cultural traditions of the American Southwest. Cost is $100; Attendees must bring a sack lunch each day.

Planned activities for Explorer’s Camp include creating sandstone carvings, Hopi Kachina figures, ceramics, beadworks, and much more. Campers will get a chance to eat authentic cuisine from the area and partake in traditional games. The camp will also include a performance by internationally-recognized flamenco musician Ronald Radford. The former Fulbright Scholar and U.S. State Department Musical Ambassador will complement his concert with “illuminating narration which recreates the very essence of this ancient folklore, Flamenco.” More information about Radford can be found online at http://www.ronaldradford.com/bio_html.html.
