Archaeology Camp for
Lifelong Learners and Educators

There are still openings in the Fort St. Joseph Archaeology Summer Camp for Lifelong Learners and Educators!  The camp allows the public to work alongside Western Michigan University students and faculty to investigate and interpret the history and archaeology of Fort St. Joseph (FSJ), an 18th century French trading post. Led by WMU’s Education Instructor Tim Bober, participants spend a week discovering the extensive history of Fort St. Joseph and participating in onsite excavation with opportunities to wet screen, map, and analyze recovered artifacts.

An approved continuing education program, the FSJ Lifelong Learner Camps are able to offer applicable students three (3) WMU Graduate credits, nine (9) State Board Continuing Education Units (Michigan), credits for recertification (Illinois), and/or credits applicable toward the Professional Growth Plan (Indiana). To apply please visit the Niles History Center Webpage or contact Mollie Watson at 269-845-4054 ext. 4013 or email:
