Join us for Summer Camp for kids from 3 to 16!

River Bend's summer camps are directed by experienced environmental educators and staffed by trained, dedicated naturalists. Enrollments are kept low to ensure individual attention and to enhance each child's experience. Sessions are designed using different themes so children can participate in multiple camps. Creative hands-on activities, games, and art are age appropriate to encourage learning about nature while having fun. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and nurturing experience.

Summer Camp Information
Given the outdoor focus of our camp programs, participants are expected to be able to meet their own personal safety needs, be self-sufficient, and function and interact appropriately within a group setting to the extent that is appropriate for the ages specified in the program descriptions. If this is not the case, please contact us for available accommodations.

Camp Schedule: An overview of our camp schedule is below. Descriptions of each camp are available by clicking on their name in the schedule, or you may browse all our Summer Camps.

Partners Scholarship Program: River Bend's Partners Scholarship Program is available for families who want to attend our programs but cannot afford to pay the entire program fee. For more information about this program or for an application, please visit our Partners Scholarship Program web page or contact us.

Camp Cancellation Policy: Refund less a $20 fee will be given if the cancellation is more than fourteen (14) days prior to the camp start date. If less than fourteen days, refund less a $20 fee will be given only if we can fill the space. If we must cancel a camp session, you will be given a full refund.
