We will not offer more camps than we are able to safely operate. Some camps have, unfortunately, been suspended due to social distancing and issues with camper and staff safety including all preschool camps.To ensure camper safety, we are reducing the number of campers in each camp. We are reviewing registrations to determine demand and whether gaps exist.
Those who have registered for Explore Nature Summer Camps please check the email you used to register for camps, as Cincinnati Parks will send pertinent information on confirming or canceling your camp registration on 5/21 – 5/22. If you feel you may not have received an official email from Cincinnati Parks, please check your clutter first, and then email Trish to inquire.
If you registered for any of the below camps please check your provided email when you registered. Cincinnati Parks is issuing refunds for canceled camps, and has sent out emails with further instruction.
