Penn Museum invites campers to join in a fascinating exploration of ancient and contemporary cultures. Each week highlights a different theme, offering campers the opportunity to enjoy one week or all eight.

Campers delight in topics such as mythology, dance, music, cooking, art, and customs from both long ago civilizations and modern cultures.
