Anthropology Museum offers summer camp for kids

The Wake Forest University Museum of Anthropology summer campers will go “island hopping” through the Pacific islands.

Day campers will learn about island culture, including fishing techniques. They will also learn how islanders used star charts to navigate their outrigger canoes. The children will make bark cloth and play games popular in that part of the world. In addition to the crafts and activities, the children will be able to examine objects from the Pacific islands, including artifacts from the Marshall Islands that were donated to the museum by Winston-Salem residents J.A. and Margaret Barnes.

Camps meet the weeks of June 12, 19 and 26. Camp hours are 9 a.m.-noon Monday-Friday. The fee for each week’s camp is $65, $55 for museum members. The fee includes supplies and a snack. Camps are for children who have completed grades 1-5. Space is limited. For more information or to register, call Myrna Mackin at 336-758-5282.
