Samford University to Bring Ancient Rome to Life for Grades 1-7 July 14-25

A unique summer day camp at Samford University July 14-25 will give Birmingham-area elementary and middle school students a chance to do as the Romans did.

Samford’s Department of Classics is partnering with Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute to offer LatinSummer, the oldest and largest program of its type in the nation. The camp will be held 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. weekdays. Registration is open to any student currently enrolled in grades one through seven. No prior knowledge of Latin or classics is required.

This will be LatinSummer’s second year in Alabama, but an all-new curriculum for 2014 welcomes both new and returning students. Participants will enjoy exciting classes in mythology, various aspects of Roman culture and even the Latin language. Hands-on activities will include carving inscriptions, building models, playing language games and creating Roman clothing.

As the LatinSummer students learn about Latin and classical studies, they will also enhance their knowledge of other subject areas and explore how the ancient Roman world has shaped our modern world.

Registration for LatinSummer is $275, with significantly reduced rates available depending on financial need.

To learn more and to register: click here.

LatinSummer classes will be taught by a staff of high school and college Latin students under the supervision of experienced teachers. All teachers are invited to visit LatinSummer as observers to discover ways to incorporate Latin and classical studies into their classrooms and to learn from the program. Call (866) 933-9466 for more information or to schedule a visit to LatinSummer.
