Architecture Camp
Architecture Camp
August 2-6 (Monday – Friday)

Designed for children ages 8-13. $45 for members; $50 for nonmembers ($5 discount if registered before June 15)

Children will love learning the basics of architecture in this hands-on camp. Campers will tour Oberlin architecture, explore building materials, try construction challenges, sketch designs, create mini structures, and envision buildings of the future. Scouts attending this camp will also complete some requirements for Architecture badges.

The Summer 2021 Camps will offer in-person hours Monday-Friday from 9:00am-1:00pm at the Oberlin Depot, 240 S. Main St. (Please note this change as camps were originally planned to be held on the Oberlin Heritage Center grounds (73 ½ S. Professor Street). Camp days will take place indoors and outdoors and there will be occasional 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.
