2015 Summer Camps - Register TODAY

Oberlin Heritage Center camps are designed to stimulate children's creativity and allow them to experience history, architecture, art, crafts, games, and the tastes and sounds of diverse cultures.

2015 Camp Selections:

July 27 – 31: Oberlin Changed the World: We'll explore Oberlin's history - but we're not just going to read or hear about history. We're going to go where it happened - in historic buildings, parks, cemeteries, and more.

August 3 – 7: Architecture Camp: Children will love learning the basics of architecture in this hands-on camp. We will tour Oberlin architecture, explore building materials, try construction challenges, sketch designs, construct mini buildings, and envision buildings of the future.

August 10 – 14: Artists in Their Time: Learn about master artists from world history and how their life and culture influenced their artwork. Then make art inspired by them! Throughout the week, students will keep a sketchbook journal and then finish with a "gallery" showing.

Camps are led by an experienced teacher assisted by college student interns as well as youth and community volunteers. Camps take place at the air-conditioned Oberlin Depot at 240 South Main Street with occasional walking field trips to notable locations nearby.

For all sessions, children should bring a bag lunch each day. Some snacks will be provided.

Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Classes may be cancelled if a minimum enrollment is not met by one week prior to the start date. No refunds will be made within one week prior to the session the registrant is scheduled to attend. Grandchildren of Oberlin Heritage Center members may receive the member discount as well.

Partial scholarships may be available to those who qualify for schools' free lunch programs (please inquire 440-774-1700).
