Learn about archaeology through experiential activities

Crow Canyon’s overnight programs for school groups are designed for students in grades 4 through 12. All programs include the basics of Pueblo history and an introduction to the science of archaeology. Choose a longer program to allow time for additional hands-on activities, evening programs, and tours, such as a daylong guided tour of Mesa Verde National Park—an outdoor classroom unlike any other.

In our flagship 5–day field archaeology program, middle and high school students learn the basics of Pueblo history, then contribute to Crow Canyon's ongoing research by working with our professional archaeologists, analyzing ancient artifacts in the laboratory, and excavating at an archaeological site.
