World Cultures Camp
August 4-8 (Monday - Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

Join us for an exciting adventure into various cultures around the world. During this camp, students will gain a greater knowledge about people around the world and their ways of life, exploring international music, dance, food, and history. Camp will include drumming, Ukrainian egg painting, cooking, folktales, and more. By learning about other countries and their practices, students will broaden their horizons, understanding not only cultural differences, but also what makes us all similar.

Notes about Camps and Registration:
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. Camps are led by an experienced teacher assisted by college 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. Partial scholarships may be available to those who qualify for schools' free lunch programs (please inquire). Reservations must be accompanied by payment. Grandchildren of Oberlin Heritage Center members may receive the member discount as well.
