This summer, the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is giving kids the opportunity to expand their minds in creative and fun ways at one of the Library’s free summer Brain Camps through the generous support of Duke Energy. Kids have two options: week long themed camps at various Library locations or one-day Mini Brain Camps at all Library locations. These camps are available as part of the Library’s Summer Adventure (formerly Summer Learning) program.
Week-Long Brain Camps
Free, week-long Brain Camps are available at select Library branches. Students in grades 1-5 can explore the world around us. Activities include stories, games, science experiments and themed crafts. Themes will vary by branch. Camps run Monday through Friday in the afternoons (exact times vary by branch).
