Summer Camp



Ziegler Park Summer Camp, a partnership between 3CDC and Youth Hope Cincinnati, got its start in 2017, shortly after the park reopened to the public following a $32 million renovation. Located in the Pendleton neighborhood, near Over-the-Rhine, Ziegler Park creates an engaging atmosphere for local youth including a playground area, interactive water feature, basketball courts, and a full-size swimming pool featuring a diving well and diving boards, climbing wall and 5 regulation lap lanes with diving platforms.


Together, 3CDC and Youth Hope started this summer camp for neighborhood youth ages 7-13 years old. Campers participate in daily activities including basketball, exercise, swimming, chess instruction and more! Campers are also provided the unique opportunity to learn from the Ziegler Park Summer Camp Youth Mentors, who are upperclassmen or recent high school graduates from the Cincinnati Public School system and neighboring districts.


In 2019, we had 80 campers participate in our 9-week program that ran from June 4- August 1st daily from Tuesday through Thursday.


Camp has ended for the year. If you have questions regarding the summer camp, please contact
