At Riverside, campers will have the opportunity to experience the love of Christ first-hand within a group of their peers. With our small group dynamic camping, campers will be in groups with other campers of their age, led by two counselors and supported by two program staff.  This low staff to camper ratio allows campers the support to foster friendships and try new activities, creating memories that last a lifetime! Campers stay with their group as they rotate through activities led by trained program staff.

Check out our 2020 Summer Schedule!



Summer days are made for sunshine, fun, and being outside with some of your best friends. Our Day Camp program embodies that attitude as the flagship of Riverside summer camp. Day camp is for ages 5-13. Every day starts with camper drop-off between 7:30AM and 8:15AM. The entire day is spent focusing on faith formation (through worship experiences and bible studies) and building lasting relationships (through play and social interaction with your camper's family groups). Your campers day wouldn't be complete without jumping in the pool, hopping in the gaga pit, or relaxing in the camp store. It is incredible how much fun we can pack into one day, but we do all that before pick-up between 5:15PM and 6:00PM.
