June 25-29 - A Week at the Museum Camp
June 25-29 (Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) A Week at the Museums. The Oberlin Heritage Center and Allen Memorial Art Museum are teaming up to offer a behind-the-scenes camp for teens. Campers will tour an art museum, history museum, and a historic house and find out answers to questions like "How do you choose what goes on the wall?" "Where does all of this stuff come from?" and "Is this really 300 years old?!" Kids will learn about daily museum operations, in the galleries and in the collections, by talking with professionals, trying activities just like the pros, and working on a mini project that friends and family can see at the end of the week. This camp is perfect for youth wanting to learn more about museums and careers in art and history. Participants can also volunteer at the museums following the camp to earn service hours.
Registration forms will be sent to members later this spring. Watch for more information at online or contact (440) 774-1700 ([email protected]) to be put on our Summer Camp mailing list. Register online.
