CampB Copyc

We are unable to provide summer camp classes onsite this year, but we’re excited to offer this FREE series of videos for you and your family. Playhouse teaching artists show you how to recreate the camp experience in your own home through engaging activities and games.

Things to Know

• Videos are modeled after our live, in-person summer camp format, with curated classes separated by topic.
• Campers can curate their virtual experience by picking one set of videos from each of the menu options.
• Each video is designed for students entering first through ninth grades.
• Most can be done without parent supervision and support, except where noted.
• Playhouse virtual camps are all free.

Parent Resources

Each series has a parent resource guide to provide more information on the learning outcomes and vocabulary in each set of videos. Craft and design videos come with print-outs and instructions for creating each project.

In-Person 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.

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.


About In-Person Camps

We hope in-person camps will return in 2021. Until then, learn more about them.

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.

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!

We often feature camps at satellite locations across Greater Cincinnati.

Before Care and After Care options available.
