When to Register

Registration opens for members and nonmembers on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 10 am EST. 

Wait List

Campers registered for the wait list will be contacted by email in the order their registrations were received. Please provide a preferred email address so you can be reached if an opening becomes available. If a response is not received within 24 hours of the email contact, the next camper on the list will automatically be contacted. If the camp opening is within one week of the camp start date, the 24-hour response policy will not apply.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the high volume of calls during camp season, we cannot answer questions regarding a child’s place on a waiting list. We will contact you by email if an opening occurs. As openings are due to cancellations, we cannot predict when or if any openings will occur. New camps will not be created if there is a demand as our camps are at capacity.

Other Registration Information

  • All camps require preregistration and prepayment.
  • Please provide an email address that is checked frequently to ensure the receipt of important camp correspondence and reminders for Cincinnati Nature Center Camps.
  • One camp shirt will be provided to all registered campers. Only one camp shirt will be provided for each participant for the entire 2019 camp season. The camper will receive the shirt at the earliest camp date scheduled. To ensure your camper receives a t-shirt in the proper size, complete your camp t-shirt order with your camp registration by May 1, 2019.


Cancellation and Transfer Policies

All requests must be completed online by logging in to your camp registration account (UltraCamp) and cancelling your camp reservation. In order to receive a refund, the cancellation must be received online by 9 am two weeks prior to the start of camp. All cancellations are subject to a $50 administrative fee per request. Cancellations made with less than two weeks’ notice will not be refunded. Transfers from one camp into another are considered a cancellation and are subject to a $50 administrative fee. It is the registrant’s responsibility to re-register the camper online.


Camp Policies

  • At drop-off, campers may arrive no more than 15 minutes before the published start time of camp.
  • At pick-up, campers are required to be picked up promptly at the end time of camp each day.
  • Children must be signed in and out each day by a designated adult. Please bring a picture ID to pick-up.
  • Bug spray and sunscreen: Our staff cannot apply these products to campers. Please apply them to your camper before they are dropped off at camp.
  • Children must bring a bag lunch each day, with the exception of children in Little Acorns, Natural Discoveries and Stories & Trails. We encourage the use of reusable lunch bags and food containers.
  • All children must be potty-trained, with the exception of Little Fledglings.
  • At CincyNature Camps where there is a large age range (such as 5-9 year olds in Enchanted Forest, or 6-13 year olds in Creek Quest, etc), campers are separated into smaller, age-appropriate groups to guarantee the best experience. Camper groups are split based on age to ensure appropriate activities and challenge level for campers. Siblings attending these large age range camps are often separated into different groups.

Health Forms

All accounts for registered campers will receive an email link to the health form. This form is required for the safety of all campers and can only be filled out using the link that is received by email.
