2011 Children's Summer Camps
This summer, the Oberlin Heritage Center is offering a variety of camps for boys and girls ages 8 to 17. The programs are designed to stimulate children's creativity and to whet their appetites for history, architecture, art, crafts, games, and the tastes and sounds of other cultures and other times.
Junior Docent Camp June 20-21 (Mon & Tues, 9:30am to 3pm)
This camp introduces young people (ages 13 to 17) who are interested in community service and
leadership to the behind-the-scenes workings of a small history museum. Teens learn techniques of greeting visitors, giving tours, teaching historic games, and much more! Following completion of the fun two-day camp, participants can assist with 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 service for OHC by the end of 2011. What a great way to develop new skills, build your resume, meet other students who love history, and complete community service hours! Instructor Liz Schultz is eager to share with young students the behind-the-scenes fun of being a museum docent. We look forward to seeing you here!
Note: This camp is held in the Jewett House of the Oberlin Heritage Center, 73 S. Professor St.
