Oberlin Outdoors Summer Camp
Oberlin Outdoors Camp
August 9-13 (Monday - Friday, 9:30-4:00)

Let's get outdoors and explore Oberlin's landscape! Campers will tour around famous man-made landmarks, gardens, and natural spaces. Children will learn about pollinators, plants, and how we effect our local environment, and try their hand at gardening and designing landscapes of their own.

The Oberlin Outdoors Camp will offer in-person hours Monday-Friday from 9:00am-1:00pm on the Oberlin Heritage Center grounds (73 ½ S. Professor Street). Camp days will take place primarily outdoors and there will be walking field trips to locations around town, weather permitting. Children must bring appropriate outdoor attire, sturdy shoes, and a mask each day. A bag lunch and water bottle must also accompany the children every day they come to the museum.

$65 for members; $75 for nonmembers ($5 discount if registered before July 1)


Notes about Camps and Registration:

Please note that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the structure and logistics of these camps may need to be revisited and altered.

Oberlin Heritage Center camps are open to boys and girls ages 8 to 13. 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 the camp, assisted by college student interns as well as community volunteers.

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 for any reason and a full refund will be made at that time.

Scholarships are available to students who qualify for schools' free or reduced lunch programs (please inquire).

If you register online, you will be contacted and asked to complete a permission form. A health survey must be completed on the first day of camp.
