July 15-17 - Teen Museum Workshop

Teen Museum Workshop, July 15-17 (Mon-Wed, 12:30pm to 3:30pm)

This three-day, behind-the-scenes workshop is designed for teens (grades 9-12) who are interested in community service, expanding their leadership and communication skills, and experiencing what it’s like to work at a museum. Teens will learn techniques of greeting visitors, giving tours, teaching historic games, working with museum collections, and much more! Following completion of the workshop, participants are invited to volunteer with the Oberlin Heritage Center for various tours, special events, and programs as their schedules permit.


The fee is $50 ($45 for children and grandchildren of OHC members) with a $25 reimbursement for students who complete at least 15 hours of volunteer service for OHC by the end of 2024.


This is a great opportunity to learn about local history, build up resumes and strengthen college applications, fulfill community service hours, and hang out with other students who have a passion for their communities.


This workshop will be led by OHC Museum Education & Tour Manager Amanda Manahan, who is eager to share the behind-the-scenes fun of being involved with a museum.


Note: This camp is held in the Jewett House of the Oberlin Heritage Center, 73 S. Professor St.
