Hiking, stream-stomping and bug-catching are a few of the key ingredients that have made Riverbend's summer exploration camp a sensation for over 30 years. Our eleven-week program offers children the opportunity to unwind, explore nature and most importantly, have fun! Through nature study and investigation, games, crafts, hikes and more, our professional educators will guide your children in hands-on exploration and science-based learning that only nature can provide.
At Riverbend, we understand that children’s interests and abilities change as they age and their mind matures. This year, we are breaking out our camps into three age categories, offering different themes to better meet the needs of children as they grow-up. Younger campers are focused on exploring their senses, strengthening their motor skills and working together; while older campers are ready to take on more challenges and apply their knowledge. To reflect their changing needs, we are offering programs that cater to each stage of childhood development

Camp Junior Volunteer
Camp Junior Volunteers have been a very important part of the success of Riverbend’s summer camp. That being said, we are constantly reevaluating and tweaking the program to ensure that participants are successful and get the most out of their experience with Riverbend. We are currently working on making a few changes so please check back later in January for our new and improved program.
Check out our Summer Exploration Camp page. Registration for 2016 opens on December 1st.
