From 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day, skilled educators will lead your children in hikes, games, hands-on exploration, crafts and nature discovery. Inspired by a different theme each week, your children will return home brimming over with stories about all of their adventures at Riverbend.
Camps for 7- and 8-year-olds: Explorers
Campers at the Explorers age are ready to discover natural wonders within and beyond Riverbend. Each day is chock-full of classic Riverbend fun including hikes, science experiments, art projects, and games, but Thursday offers something special: a field trip to a local nature area or museum. Your children will learn there is a whole world out there to explore! Each weekly session offers a different theme for investigation; daily schedules run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Explorers can also extend their day through an optional Thursday night cookout complete with campfire and s'mores. This costs an additional $20 per week/per child and would run until 8:30 p.m.
