Welcome to Camp Rivermont!

Our summer programming for 2024 encompasses all age and grade levels, organized into three distinct categories: Camp Rivermont – Early Childhood (ages 2-4), Camp Rivermont (grades K-5), and Camp Rivermont – Summer Academies (grades 6-12).

Camp Rivermont – Early Childhood (Ages 2, 3, & 4)

Imagine a delightful summer camp designed exclusively for children aged 2 to 4, aiming to provide a holistic experience that nurtures their overall development. Camp Rivermont – Early Childhood offers a well-rounded program encompassing indoor and outdoor activities and cognitive development, all wrapped in a different weekly theme: Week 1-Jurassic Adventure, Week 2-Camping, Week 3-Outer Space, Week 4-Red, White, and Blue, Week 5-Cooking, Week 6-Superheroes, Week 7-Open Seas, and Week 8-Back to Basics.

Camp Rivermont (Grades K-5)

Welcome to Camp Rivermont, a vibrant and inclusive summer camp designed for kindergarten through 5th grade children. Our camp is dedicated to providing a holistic experience that nurtures the whole child through a blend of indoor and outdoor activities, cognitive development programs, and a fun-filled environment. Activities will be designed around different weekly themes: Week 1-Jurassic Adventure, Week 2-Mythical & Magical, Week 3-Outer Space, Week 4-Red, White, and Blue, Week 5-World Cup, Week 6-Superheroes, Week 7-Open Seas, and Week 8-Imp/Tiger Olympics.

Embracing tradition, we kick off each day with a grand opening ceremony that sets the stage for exploration and camaraderie. The closing ceremony is a memorable event where achievements are celebrated and lasting memories are made.

Rivermont Summer Academies (Grades 6-12)

Rivermont Summer Academies will appeal to older students. Our summer academies offer specialized programs that align with middle and high school students’ diverse interests and developmental stages. Rivermont Summer Academies are structured so students taking more than one week of a session will continually expand and build upon their knowledge regardless of the weeks they select. So, each week is not a repeat of the previous. The range of activities, from sports training to intellectual challenges in chess, science experiments, tabletop gaming, and music performance, caters to a broad spectrum of interests. Our summer academies also allow older students to further develop and hone their skills in specific areas of interest, such as advanced chess strategies, TTRPG mastery, or musical proficiency. Including an ACT/SAT Prep Academy addresses the practical needs of high school students preparing for college admission exams, contributing to their academic success. Overall, the diverse and skill-focused nature of the programs creates an engaging and enriching summer experience tailored to the interests and aspirations of older students.
