Calling all Young Indies! Leave the bullwhip at home and get your trowels, brushes, and tape measures ready! At Time Detectives, campers journey back in time to visit some of ancient civilization’s greatest empires. Becoming cultural private eyes, they’ll solve age-old mysteries, explore other worlds, and get down and dirty digging for clues. Each camp kicks off with a mock archaeology dig and concludes with a Friday Feast of cultural cuisine. In between, we’ll explore ancient buildings, star lore, mythology, travel and trade routes, and more! Registration form

NEW THIS YEAR! Let the real games begin! Mound Mayhem EXTREME combines ancient and futuristic knowledge in an all out Hunger Games challenge of survival. Hope your name doesn’t get called?

(Campers need not have attended Mound Mayhem to participate in this camp.)
Not for the faint of heart, Time Detectives is an intensive immersion experience, meaning campers will spend time off the beaten path, getting dirty and being active. Depending on registrant nos., each camp will include a field trip. All activities are facilitated by Angel Mounds’ own seasoned staff with over 30 years combined experience. Each camper receives personal attention in an engaging setting that will make for an unforgettable summer!
