Children’s Summer Programs at Pueblo Grande Museum



Let’s face it: It’s hot out there, the kids are midway through summer break……… and they may be getting restless. Well, we have just the fix to help you keep the kiddies entertained. Beginning July 12 through July 29, Pueblo Grande Museum, a section of the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, is offering its children’s summer program for kids ages 7-12.

From 8:30am to 12:00pm, classes will focus on stone age crafts, art, survival tools, archaeology and American Indian peoples.  Kids will learn how to make tools from stones, gourds and natural materials found in the desert as well as make arts and crafts from natural desert materials.  During our archaeology week, participants will learn how to survey a site and techniques in archaeology.  Become the real Indiana Jones or Lara Croft and learn what Hollywood doesn’t know about the field of archaeology!  These programs include all activities and snacks. The cost for each program is $55.
