Pony Express and Printing Press. Hold the phone! Stop the presses! Find out the different ways people sent messages to each other in the past. By the end of camp you'll know how to print a newspaper, send a message on a telegraph, write your name in cursive, type on a typewriter, and record your voice. Part of camp will include a hands-on visit to the letter press studio of Special Collections at the Oberlin College library.
