|Anthropology interns Laurel Downs, Michael Grevera, and Natalie Wagner |
created and developed curriculum and programming for the archaeology camp in 2012
The locations for the camp included several archaeological sites along Fishing Creek in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.
The children enjoy combining outdoor adventure with archaeology through the annual Camp Aspen, making each child feel like a real life "Indiana Jones." Over the years the artifacts found have included several lithic cores, arrowheads (lithic biface tools), sinkers, grinding tools, historic and prehistoric features, colonial pottery, metal tools and many flakes left from someone making stone tools thousands of years ago.
Support for this program has come from multiple offices including the College of Liberal Arts, the Anthropology department, the Quest office, URSCA grant funding and a grant from the Presidential Strategic Planning intended to support key initiatives in the Bloomsburg University Strategic Plan, Impact 2015.
