Studies will cover the fascinating history of the ancient Pueblo Indians (the Anasazi) who lived in the Mesa Verde region. You will help our team of professional archaeologists at a working excavation site, and learn to sort and identify artifacts in the Crow Canyon research laboratory.
At Crow Canyon’s pithouse and pueblo learning centers, you can try your hand at spear-throwing with an atlatl, making a fire without matches, and playing traditional Native American games. The amazing skills and life ways of the people who inhabited the Mesa Verde region 700 to 2,500 years ago will amuse and amaze. The week is traditionally topped off with a special all-day tour of nearby Mesa Verde National Park, a World Heritage site.
