For more than 20 years, the River Parkway Trust has been offering an exciting, fun, and safe experience for the Valley’s children at River Camp in Fresno. Our lively and experienced staff of counselors, lifeguards, visiting scientists, and artists engage local youth in activities that enhance their understanding of, and connection to, the San Joaquin River.
Each summer more than 1,000 children attend camp during eight weeks from June through August. This is a great opportunity for your business to gain visibility to over 600 individual families utilizing our new sponsor perks. These include visibility on our website, social media, and River Camp banner. New this year, sponsor logos will be placed on the famous River Camp t-shirts that are spotted throughout the region and worn by campers year-round.

River Camp Firebaugh
Sponsorship opportunity for River Camp Firebaugh 2021 is available now! CLICK HERE to view the most recent sponsorship packet.
In 2012, the River Parkway Trust identified the community of Firebaugh as a great site to launch a River Camp program to serve youth in the community of Firebaugh and surrounding Westside communities. This unique program offers the River Camp experience to youth in underserved and disadvantaged agricultural communities that would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience and learn about the San Joaquin River.
This program continues to grow and in recent years, thanks to our generous corporate and individual sponsors, we have been able to expand the River Camp summer program in Firebaugh from two weeks to six weeks. This is a great opportunity for local businesses to gain visibility in Firebaugh and the surrounding Westside communities.

Sycamore Island Park Operations
Sponsorship opportunities for the Sycamore Island 2021 season will be available soon! CLICK HERE to view the most recent sponsorship packet.
The River Parkway Trust has operated the original 350-acre property since 2013, and it has become one of the most visited destinations on the Parkway with over 13,000 visitors last year alone. We are excited that in 2018, we were able to increase access on this site by opening an adjacent piece of land called the Van Buren Unit adding 270 acres and 1.5 miles of riverfront for people to enjoy. Sycamore Island has three access points to the river for canoeing and kayaking. While this site is popular for boating and fishing, it also has several miles of dirt roads that provide an excellent surface for trail running, walking, mountain biking and horseback riding. At Sycamore Island, there are three covered picnic shelters and a bait shop that sells bait, snacks, and beverages.
In 2019, we anticipate more visitors to this site through our growing program activities such as school field trips, running races, fishing derbies, and boating activities. This is a great opportunity for businesses to gain visibility to over 13,000 annual visitors by utilizing our new sponsor perks including visibility on our website and social media, the Sycamore Island printed maps, and a banner at the site for all visitors to see.

An investment in our Valley
Community-minded companies recognize that an investment in parklands makes the Valley a better place to live - and that's good for business. Research shows that access to recreation in natural spaces is essential for the physical, environmental, social, and economic health of a community. The River Parkway Trust partners with businesses that share our commitment to conserving land and providing places where people can experience renewal in nature.
