2021 SUMMER NATURE DAY CAMPS
We’ll hike through forests and fields, explore creeks, make crafts and play games to learn more about the plants and animals that live right here in Cincinnati. Our award winning camps are run by Explore Nature! staff and summer counselors. These camps vary in topic and age range, but all children participate in active fun centered around local nature topics. Themes and activities vary each summer, so camp is “new” for your child each year!
Financial assistance is available for eligible candidates through Cincinnati Parks Foundation's Stephenson Sisters Scholarship Fund. Please view our scholarship policy here: Camp Scholarship Policy.pdf. Applications will accepted through May 24th, 2021. Please apply here: 2021 Summer Camp Scholarship Application.
Due to the limited number of camp spaces as a result of COVID-19, campers may only register for ONE of each type of camps. Persons with multiple registrations will be contacted and their duplicate registration canceled.
