2020 River Camps 

Summer camp registration for 2020 will start at 12 p.m. Feb. 1.

The river camps are licensed by the State and we have experienced instructors that understand the safety of on-water activities while balancing the importance of outdoor fun and adventure. Our popular river camps teach kids how to explore and love their natural world all from the seat of a boat! As the river theme and activities repeat throughout the summer, we highly recommend that participants register for no more than two weeks of camp during the summer.
