Classics Camp – Meet the Greeks and Romans Session 2

August 10 - August 21

| $450

A summer day camp experience for students entering 5th-8th grades. On the UW-Madison campus. $450. Session 2: August 10-21, 2020. Mark your calendars. Registration will open soon: https://canes.wisc.edu/classicscamp/
Summer 2020 will be the third year of our camp. Drop off between 8:30 and 9:00 am. Pick-up between 3:00 and 4:30 pm. Pack your own snacks and lunch. Explore the rich and fascinating worlds of ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. Through interactive activities, students learn about everyday life in ancient Greece and Rome, including myth, history, drama, art and architecture, clothing, and food. Students also learn a bit of Ancient Greek and Latin (don’t worry, it’s not that hard!) and find out about their roots in the English language we speak today (impress your friends and family when you write their names in ancient Greek!). Students also explore how classical civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome are foundational points of reference for modern fiction like J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson. Join us to delve into the ancient world of the Greeks and Romans through stories, archaeology, monuments, language, and arts and crafts!
