Laurier Enriched Academic Program

in grades 1-9 who are looking for a day camp
experience that piques their curiosity
and has a large “fun” quotient.

- Camps provide a rich variety of activities to appeal to all types of learners

Amazing Archeology – Megan Garcia
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if there was no language; how would you invent ways to communicate? What artifact would best explain life in Waterloo Region in 2015 if future researchers were trying to understand our culture? What is it like to be the first person in hundreds of years to see an ancient site? In this camp, you will learn to see the world through the eyes on an archeologist, and to understand the meaning of material remains. For our big project, we will use our creativity to formulate cultures of our own and invent artifacts to go along with it which will then be buried for others to find and interpret. Together we will take a trip through the past.
Information on financial aid for LEAP campers who live in Woolwich County can be found here.
