Mar 25 & 26 - World Culture Camp
March 25-26 (Wednesday and Thursday), 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
Join us for a lively hop around the globe as we explore a variety of different cultures through games, hands-on activities, photographs, and cooking. A few of the lands and traditions we will sample include Colombia, Pacific Islands, East Asia, and New Orleans Mardi Gras.
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.
