Mar. 24-27 - Spring Break Camps

March 24 & 25 - Undercover History: Spies, Detectives, and Police

Together we will explore the history of people who watch, listen, conclude, and act to keep their country...or their secrets safe. Document your fingerprints and solve a mystery. Develop an alter ego and sneak around in disguise. Watch carefully to identify the liar in the group. Figure out a way to send a secret message.

March 26 & 27 - Ancient Egypt

Learn about the people, gods, and land of the pharaohs. How did they build their mighty monuments? What wonders did they want with them in their tombs? Together we will gaze upon treasures from Egypt, craft an object for the afterlife, write a message in hieroglyphics, and sample Egyptian cuisine.

Oberlin Heritage Center camps are open to boys and girls ages 8 to 13. Each two-day camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Camps are designed to stimulate children's creativity and whet their appetites for history, architecture, art, and the tastes and sounds of other cultures and other times. Camp will be held at the Oberlin Depot at 240 South Main Street, sometimes with 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.
