Hey kids — don’t end up bored during spring break. Take a hop around the globe and explore different culture with “Around the World in Three Days.”

The Oberlin Heritage Center will present the spring break mini-camp from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. from March 21 to 23 at the Oberlin Depot, 240 South Main St.

It will look at the lands and traditions of the Arctic peoples, Australia, West Africa, and India. OHC staffers Amanda Manahan and Mary Manning will lead the camp, assisted by adult and teen community volunteers.
