The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage. The NPS arrowhead emblem symbolizes the major facets of the national park system. The Sequoia tree and bison represent vegetation and wildlife, the mountains and water represent scenic and recreational values, and the arrowhead represents historical and archeological values.
What is so special about Chamizal National Memorial that it is protected as part of the national park system? How is the arrowhead a symbol of what park rangers care for at El Paso’s only national park? These big questions can be answered by area youth who attend Camp Arrowhead. Chamizal National Memorial invites children from 6 to 12 years old to participate in this day camp which runs from 9 am to noon on July 18-20. Each day focuses on different values represented in the arrowhead emblem using games, stories, crafts and many other fun activities including a special workshop, sponsored by El Paso Museums & Cultural Affairs Department, in which kids will create and learn to use their own simple marionette.
Participation in Camp Arrowhead is free, but space is limited and will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Find more information and register for Camp Arrowhead. Registration forms are also available in the Cultural Center between 10 am and 5 pm daily. For additional questions, please call 915-532-7273.
