Supervision of minors
Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult for the ENTIRE tour. If a minor decides not to zip all or part of the course, they must be accompanied by an adult once off the course. Any minors in the group must still have an adult with them on the tour. For this reason, it is recommended that each group has multiple adults.

Where is the Ozone Zipline adventures located?
We are part of YMCA Camp Kern, and the Check-In for Ozone is located just one minute past the entrance of Camp Kern in the valley of the Little Miami Valley. We are just 2 miles from exit 32 on I-71. When arriving or a zip tour DO NOT turn into the main camp entrace. Follow the signs to the bottom of the hill and part by the old stone tavern. Need directions? Click here for further directions.

As with all adventure activities, there is some risk involved. However, safety is a ‘non-negotiable’ in everything we do here at YMCA Camp Kern, and Ozone Zipline Adventures is no exception. Please click here to see how we have provided safe zip line tours to tens of thousands of guests since 2009.
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, all guests must sign a waiver. Guests under the age of 18 will need a guardian’s signature before zipping, and all guests under the age of 18 will require a responsible adult to go on the ENTIRE tour with them. Waivers are available on site.
What if I'm scared of heights?
Many people are nervous about heights (despite what they say!) and we understand that some people may be apprehensive about tackling an experience such as this. Our professionally trained Tour Guides will be with you at all times to make sure that everyone has a positive experience and to encourage you to to push your self. However, our ‘Challenge by Choice’ philosophy ensures that no-one will be forced to do anything they aren’t comfortable with. All our equipment is checked daily and exceeds all industry standards.

My friends want to come but aren't purchasing a tour. Is there a place for them to watch?
We are unable to accommodate additional, non-zipping guests on our tour. The course travels through the forest canopies and back and forth across the Little Miami River, and therefore is not suitable for spectating. Only guests with reservations will be allowed on the main camp property.
