Oberlin Heritage Center camps stimulate children's creativity and whet their appetites for history, architecture, art, and the tastes and sounds of other cultures and other times. Camps are led by an experienced teacher assisted by an adult intern or volunteer, and young volunteers from the community. This camp will be held at the Oberlin Depot at 240 South Main Street, sometimes with some walking field trips to interesting places nearby, weather permitting. For all days children should bring a bag lunch and dress for being outside for certain activities. Simple snacks are provided.
