Fort St. Joseph Archaeology Summer Camps 


WMU and the City of Niles are excited to offer several summer camp programs for youth and lifelong learners, alike! These camps provide an opportunity for the public to engage in history and search for evidence at the Fort St. Joseph archeology site. Led by WMU’s Education Instructor Tim Bober, participants spend a week discovering the extensive history of FSJ 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).
