"What a Wonderful World!" Spring Break Camps

March 27-29 or April 3-5

Join us for an exciting and breathtaking exploration of the many wonders of earth! Campers will learn about the seven wonders of the ancient world, the “new” seven, and some of nature’s marvels. We will explore how people throughout history created immense and architecturally impressive structures, the science behind geological formations, and why cultures create –all through engaging, hands-on activities!


Area schools have different breaks, so OHC is offering two weeks of this three-day camp! This camp will be offered:

Register online and/or fill out the registration flyer and mail to P.O. Box 0455, Oberlin, OH, 44074.

If you register online, you will be contacted and asked to complete a permission form.


Oberlin Heritage Center camps are open to boys and girls ages 8 to 13. This three-day camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day and will be offered twice to accommodate different school breaks. Camps are designed to stimulate children’s creativity and encourage curiosity about history, architecture, art, and other cultures. Camp will be held at the Oberlin Depot (240 South Main Street), sometimes with walking field trips to interesting places nearby, weather permitting. Children should bring a bag lunch and dress for outdoor activities and play. Simple snacks are provided by OHC.
