River Camp at the River Center 

Calling all 1st-4th graders!  River Camp at the River Center is our traditional day camp program that's just for you!  Each day you'll play traditional camp games, participate in environmental education activities, sing camp songs, do arts and crafts, and explore the River Center with your new friends.  Campers at this site are within a smaller age range than at Owl Hollow, so individual groups will consist of campers of the same age and activities can be adapted just for them.  Please note: there is no swim at River Camp at the River Center; each afternoon campers will participate in water-based games (slip-n-slide contests, water balloon wars, relay races, musical sprinkler runs, etc.) and we're working to make them bigger and better than ever! For over 25 years, the River Parkway Trust has been offering an exciting, fun, and safe day camp experience for the Valley’s children at River Camp.   A River Camp T-shirt is included in the cost of registration; you’ll get yours on the first day of camp.  Space is limited. Please sign up early to ensure you get your first choice week.

Give the gift of fun!
