This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Independence: Participants gain on site work experience in archaeology as well as learning independently throughout the course.

Founded in partnership with the Royal Ontario Museum and TRCA in 1975, the Boyd Archaeological Field School (Boyd FS) is Canada’s only high school credit course offering students the opportunity to earn Ontario High School Credits while participating in real archaeological fieldwork.

Students gain important background material on archaeology and indigenous history through online learning and classroom sessions, and get full on-the-job training in real archaeological skills.

This experiential course challenges students to strive for new levels of achievement in a team environment. Learning experiences include:

  • Excavation of a real archaeological site.
  • Hands-on activities such as flintknapping and other ancient technologies.
  • An academic classroom component featuring sessions led by certified teachers and professional archaeologists, as well as guest lectures from leading experts.
  • Career and community connections.

A combination of field work, classroom studies and online learning confers a Grade 12 Interdisciplinary Studies credit (IDC4U/O) and a Grade 11 Co-op credit, DCO3O – Creating Opportunities through Co-op. The course meets credit expectations defined by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

The program requires completion of Grade 10 at the time of the course.

Course instructors include certified Ontario teachers, licensed archaeologists, Indigenous educators and respected professionals in a variety of specialties
