Ohio Hi-Point is pleased to offer two pilot summer camps for the 2019 summer season. Both of the camps are free of charge.
The Summer Innovation Camp will be hosted at the Ohio Hi-Point Bellefontaine Main Campus and the Manufacturing Camp will be hosted at the Marysville Early College High School.
In addition to hosting summer camps, OHP will also partner with the Champaign County Inventors Camp to teach students about engineering and manufacturing.
The summer camps below could not be possible without the support of the community and local businesses. The Summer Innovation Camp at the Bellefontaine Main Campus is made possible in part by the United Way of Logan County's Community Impact Fund.
We look forward to showcasing career fields and hands-on, interactive modules for students to develop critical thinking, teamwork, and problem solving skills.

During this free camp, students choose three career modules they want to learn more about, exploring one career module per day. Students are exposed to various career paths within the module and participate in hands-on and interactive activities to showcase what they learned.
Lunch and snacks will be provided to students each day.

During practical exercises airsoft weapons will be used. (Proper use airsoft weapons and safety equipment will be provided to the students before use.)
Students will have an opportunity to use the latest technology that the most successful manufacturing companies are using today. Students will have an opportunity to design and 3D print their very own key fob using the latest 3D modeling software. Students will also have an opportunity to manufacture their very own hammer using a CNC lathe. Completion of both projects will allow each student to take home a finished product to be proud of.
Experience Adobe Photoshop and Basic Photography in a fun and interactive environment. Students will work to colorize black and white photographs of their choosing and create a fully rendered COLOR version of the same picture. In addition, students will get their hands on professional cameras and take a "shot" at product and model photography in the green room. Students will learn to remove the green background and replace it with something else! Ever had your picture taken on the moon? Well, now you can.
Students will learn the safety and operation of Green Industry equipment. Some of the equipment the students will operate are Skid Steer Loaders, Mini Excavators, and Commercial mowers. After learning the safe operation of equipment students will be able to try their luck at skill challenges with the machinery.
