From Farm to Fork to Fun Summer Camp
July 16-20 (Monday – Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
Ever wonder where your food comes from? How it is made? What happens to it before you buy it? This camp will give participants a taste of the history of growing, selling, and serving food. Campers will also learn about ancient food preparation and preservation techniques from around the world, such as pickling and drying, through hands-on activities and field trips.

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. An experienced educator leads each camp, assisted by college student interns as well as youth and community volunteers. Each session takes place at the air-conditioned Oberlin Depot (240 South Main St.) with occasional walking field trips to notable locations nearby. Children should bring a bag lunch, beverage, and appropriate outdoor wear each day. An afternoon snack will be provided by OHC.

Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations must be accompanied by payment. Children and grandchildren of Oberlin Heritage Center members may receive the member discount. No refunds will be made for cancellations within one week prior to the session the registrant is scheduled to attend. A camp session may be cancelled by OHC if a minimum enrollment is not met by one week prior to the start date and a full refund will be made at that time. Partial scholarships may be available to those who qualify for schools' free lunch programs (please inquire 440-774-1700).

If you register online, you will be contacted and asked to complete a permission form. This camp will require additional waivers for transportation and special activities.
