Camps Cancelled

On Friday, May 15, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued guidance and requirements for 2020 summer day camps. We have carefully reviewed the details and have decided to cancel all remaining Playhouse summer camps at all locations. We’re heartbroken that we won’t get to experience a summer of play with your children this year. The health and well-being of our campers, staff and teaching artists is our top priority, and we feel this is the best course of action for all involved.

Registrants can choose to do any of the following:

• Donate your camp value and receive a tax deduction
• Credit your camp value toward a future purchase with a gift certificate
• Refund your camp value 

Camp Requests


Thank you for being a superhero to your kids and families!

We salute you and all that you do, and we are here to help make this change to your summer schedule as smooth as possible.



Engage in a Summer of Play
Starting in July, we will be posting a FREE series of online summer camp sessions you can access at home on your own schedule. These videos will be full of the activities and games your child would have played at camp. We hope they will bring some creative family fun and enjoyment during the summer months, so stay tuned!

We invite you to explore our Art at Home page, which includes resources like vintage coloring pages from A Christmas Carol, a free playwriting class for teens with playwright Lauren Gunderson, and The Kennedy Center's Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems series.



Summer of Play
Together, campers explore fantastical worlds, storybook lands, our favorite books and movies, and so much more — all while having fun through the excitement of live theatre.

Camp Ideology
We believe everyone has a voice. Our process-based summer camp programs are designed to build confidence, strengthen communication skills and develop a sense of ensemble and community. Camps for young people ages 3 to 17 focus on individual and collective development in a fun, supportive and skills-based environment. Tuition ranges from $125 to $845 and varies depending on camp type and number of weeks.

Session Options

• Half-day, one-week camps for children ages 3 to 5
• Full-day, one-week camps for incoming first- through 10th-graders
• Full-day, one-week and multi-week Performance Academy camps for incoming first- through 12th-graders

The Playhouse comes to YOU!

In addition to camps at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, we often feature camps at satellite locations across Greater Cincinnati.

Before Care and After Care options are available for camps located at the Playhouse.
