Egyptian Mummies In-depth
July 9 & 10
Registration Deadline: June 18
Mission: Analyze a mummy to learn everything you can about him. When was he mummified? Where? How old was he at the time of mummification? What was his job in ancient Egypt, and how did he die? These are the questions mummy experts ask themselves, and this is what we’ll try to discover as we examine two of the Museum’s real ancient Egyptian mummies.

The camp day begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. Regular morning check-in begins at 9:15 a.m. Paid before-care is $20 and starts at 8 a.m. (must have pre-registered). Paid after-care is $20 and runs from 3:30 - 5 p.m
