A Week of Fun and Learning at Institute for American Indian Studies

If your kids are restless as summer draws to a close one solution is to enroll them in a brand new week-long program at the Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington Connecticut on 38 Curtis Road that is sure to engage them. This program is perfect for kids 5-13 years old and will focus on skills used in the Eastern Woodlands for centuries by Native Americans.

Participants will experience a variety of interesting and unusual topics that they are sure to share with their friends when the school year begins. Skill lessons learned will include ecology, archaeology, survival skills and Native American culture. Team building games will increase their knowledge of nature and will connect kids with a culture that has more than 10,000 years of history in the area. Just some of the activities include learning to identify different plants and animals, learning about the science of archeology from staff archaeologists, and visiting an authentic Algkonian Indian Village, and listening to Native American stories that always teach a valuable life lesson.

The program runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is $125 per child for the week and $95 for the second child from the same family or member of the Institute. Pre-registration is required in order for the Institute to provide a valuable and safe learning experience for your child. These programs are best for children 5-13. Children should pack a bag lunch.
