Summer break will be here before we know it – and while we all love quality time with our kids, summer “break” isn’t always a vacation for parents. Enter: summer camps. With overnight, half- and full-day options, camps featuring every sport and hobby around and options for preschoolers to high schoolers, you can literally find the perfect camp for your kids.
But with so many stellar summer camps out there, it can be a bit overwhelming picking the right one! Which is why we’ve organized our Summer Camp Fair. Our third annual Camp Fair happens March 10 from 12-3 pm at Scene75 Cincinnati, and is a must for Cincinnati Parents!
Here are our Top 5 reasons to attend Cincinnati Parent’s Camp Fair sponsored by Creation Museum & Kids First Sports Complex:
1. It’s FREE
Admission and parking are free; kids’ activities are free — this event is totally free to attend! Think of it as summer camp window shopping — you can look around and gather information while your kids enjoy lots of free activities.
2. We’ve done the research for you
Skip the endless google searches and online research. At Summer Camp Fair, you can wander from booth to booth and talk face-to-face with local businesses and organizations about their upcoming programs and camps that they will be offering over the summer months. You can gather flyers, have your questions answered and really get a sense of what to expect from each of the camps.
3. It’s a festival for kids
Don’t worry about booking a babysitter for the afternoon – bring the kids! The first 500 children who attend will receive a FREE $5 arcade card PLUS have the chance to participate in fun activities. See what else Scene75 has to offer here.
4. Plan a whole summer of fun — in one afternoon
What parent doesn’t like to get things crossed off their endless To-Do List? At Camp Fair, you can literally sign your kids up and get your summer break in order. (You won’t be hearing any “I’m bored” complaints from your kids this year!) This year’s lineup includes:
- Camp at the J
- Camp Etc. at Dance Etc.
- Cincinnati Shakespeare Company

5. Meet and mingle with your fellow Cincinnati Parents
Bring a group of your friends and sign your kids up for the same camps (then you can carpool!). Meet other parents whose kids have similar interests. Let your kids make friends as they play. Summer Camp Fair is a great way to feel like part of the larger Cincinnati Parent community — we’re all in this together, after all!
