2011 Children's Summer Camps
This camp is now closed.
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.
Architecture Camp August 15-19 (Mon-Fri, 9:30am to 4:00pm)
The Three Little Pigs taught us never to build houses of straw and sticks, but why are straw and sticks a bad idea? Ever wonder why buildings look the way they do? What keeps tall buildings standing? Join us for an exciting and fast-paced introduction to architecture by visiting local structures in Oberlin and talking with a real-life architect. You'll even get a chance to construct some models and test a creation against the forces of nature! Come build your knowledge with us this summer! Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts attending this camp will also complete some requirements for Architecture badges and Interest Projects. (Ages 8-13)
