CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Your kids can probably tell you exactly how many days they have left of school. For most, it's just a few more weeks. So if you're still figuring out summer plans we have all of the options for affordable family fun.
There's a great, free program courtesy of the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library System. A number of different branches are hosting week long brain camps this summer. These camps will appeal to a lot of kids, with topics like art, Lego robotics, even an ACT prep camp. You do have to register online through the library's website to save a spot for your child, and don't wait, because they're booking up.
The library is also offering free summer reading tutoring to children in grades one through three who are behind grade level. This is no cost, one-on-one tutoring.
An annual pass to Hamilton County's Great Parks system is just $10. So those are a great place for hiking or picnicking this summer. Several of those parks also feature splash pads and water playgrounds, too, which are perfect for hot days. $25 will buy your child a wristband that gets them in all summer, or you can pay $4 per visit.
You can stay cool and teach your kids something about art at either the Cincinnati Art Museum in Eden Park or the Contemporary Arts Center downtown. Both have a lot to offer your kids, and they're free, thanks to generous donors.
On Monday and Thursday mornings, there will once again be free family movies at the Kenwood Theater, the Esquire, and the Mariemont theater.
