Camp Information

Meet the Romans introduces youth to ancient Roman civilization. Learn about gods, heroes, and monsters, gladiators and chariot-racing, and real Roman artifacts here on campus. Put on your toga and armor as you create your own Roman arts and crafts, excavate artifacts, engineer (chocolate) roads, play Roman games and sports, throw a Roman banquet, and learn some Latin, too. (Attention parents: Latin is a great way to boost advanced English vocabulary. Over 90% of English words of more than two syllables come from Latin.) Carpe Diem.
