Nome Archaeology Camp
We partner with National Park Service to host a Nome Archaeology Camp where teens explore the cultural heritage and history of the Bering Straits region. Teens investigate caribou drive lines, map cairn and tent sites, learn the tools to scan and re-print artifacts, and work alongside community elders to identify and catalog items. Teens become immersed in the cultural and natural landscape and become more familiar with National Park Service’s efforts to preserve the history of the region.
Open to high school students from the Bering Strait and Northwest Arctic regions. One trip offering. Nominations open January 2022. Check back for more details.
