Meet the Greeks introduces kids to ancient Greek civilization. Learn about Greek mythology, the Olympic games, Greek warfare & daily life, and what happens to a Greek hero when he doesn’t listen to an oracle. Try wearing Greek clothing and checking out ancient toys. You will create your own Greek arts and crafts and learn a little language too. You do not have to be Percy Jackson to write your name in cool Greek letters and read simple stories in ancient Greek.
(Attention parents: Greek roots abound in English, especially in technical vocabulary. They are not hard to identify, once kids know the basics, for an English vocabulary boost.)
Class Size: 10-15 Students
Food: It is recommended that each student bring a water bottle, a snack and sunblock. Those in full-day camp should also bring a lunch (refrigeration is available). Meet the Romans Camp is a nut free environment.
