Ohio’s PBS stations, through a partnership with the Ohio Department of Education, are working with families and out-of-school time programs to address disruptions to learning caused during the COVID-19 pandemic. WBGU-PBS is excited to be part of this initiative!

Ohio Learns 360 provides families and out-of-school time professionals with PBS resources including standards-based curriculum and materials, virtual field trips, interactive video programs and community events. All are designed to accelerate student learning and support learners in kindergarten through fifth grade.


Camp-in-a-Box trainings are free professional development trainings for K-5 after school and summer school professionals. Each person who attends will receive a box that includes FREE resources for a week-long camp, including books, PBS videos, a standards-based curriculum and materials for hands-on activities for up to 20 children! New boxes with different themes are available quarterly. 

To register for a training, click on a date/time below, complete the registration form and click "submit." We encourage you to register to attend both a Winter Fun and a Winter Survival Camp Training. Please contact Laural Kirchner at or 419-372-9318 if you have any questions about the Camp-in-a-Box trainings and materials.
