Things to do for Kids

River Rampage Registration Begins — The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is once again offering a River Rampage expedition this summer down the San Juan River in southern Utah. The city’s Adaptive Recreation Services’ River Rampage is an outdoor adventure program for youths between the ages of 14 to 20, with disabilities or facing significant life challenges.  The program also teaches them to appreciate diversity as each trip includes young people of various cultures, economic status and ability levels.  Three one-week whitewater rafting trips will be offered: June 15-21, June 26-July 2, July 9-15.
This is a free opportunity, but participants must perform 40 hours of volunteer work (with the help of a mentor) before their trip.  Volunteers are also needed for this program.  For information or to request an application (available in English, Spanish, Braille and large print) to participate or volunteer, call 602-534-5681 (voice), 602-534-2491 (TTY) or email tj.penkoff@phoenix.gov.

Dig it! Children’s hands on gallery—  More than two years in planning, this hands-on exhibit will delight visitors of all ages.  Features include a life-size replica of an excavated trench wall where hands-on elements demonstrate the science of archaeology, and a photo-mural illustrates various aspects of archaeological field work. Learn how archaeologists study clues from ancient and historic sites that are used in identifying artifacts, such as ancient pottery, and create your own designs using interactive magnetic drawing slates.  Build a miniature Hohokam village or take a break and enjoy the museum’s orientation video in the newly renovated theater.  General admission applies. Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park, 4619 E. Washington, (602) 495-0901.
Flight over phoenix exhibit— This unique and engaging exhibit tells the story of a historic survey flight over the Salt and Gila River valleys – a flight which produced over 600 aerial photographs of ancient Hohokam canals and ruin. Interest in aerial photography of ancient sites had been piqued in the late 1920s by the high-profile expeditions of Lindbergh throughout northern Arizona, New Mexico and the Yucatan.  Now, 75 years later, City Archaeologist Todd Bostwick and Richard Boston, Archaeologist for the Bureau of Reclamation have negotiated with the Smithsonian to bring these images and story back to Pueblo Grande. General admission applies. Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park, 4619 E. Washington, (602) 495-0901.
