Amazing Arizona Summer Programs: A Race through History with Pueblo Grande Museum and the Rosson House

Pueblo Grande Museum and the Rosson House are partnering again to offer summer programs for children ages 6 to 9 and ages 10 to 13. This year’s program will be hosted at both sites and cover both the prehistoric and historic cultures of Arizona, as well as the science of archaeology we use to learn about them. Children can “race” through time during the camps collecting different stamps and stickers in their Amazing Arizona Passports for each of the different skills, crafts, and projects they complete.

Early registration fee of  $175 per week by May 31, 2013. Registration fee increases to $200 per week June 1, 2013. Pueblo Grande Museum registration begins April 27, 2013. Registration for the Rosson House Museum is currently open. 

Sign your child up for one week at both Pueblo Grande Museum and the Rosson House to receive a 1 year Family Membership to both institutions! Lunch is not provided during these programs, but light snacks and drinks will be available.
