River Camp at Owl Hollow
River Camp at Owl Hollow
Is your 6th-8th grader ready for an amazing week down by the river? River Camp at Owl Hollow, held at our newly completed riverfront site next to the River Center, is a camp that's just for them. Each day they will learn leadership skills, participate in games that promote teambuilding and communication with their peers, and complete hands-on science and engineering challenges-- not to mention camp classics like canoeing, swim time, and arts and crafts. Sample activities include building a solar oven to cook s'mores, participating in a site-wide "escape room" challenge, and taking part in classic low ropes course style (ground work only) teambuilding. Our lively and experienced staff will engage your children in activities that will encourage personal growth as they make new friends, try new things, and reconnect with the natural world. A River Camp 2020 T-shirt is included in the cost of registration.

We are reducing group sizes to a maximum of 50 people (including Staff and Junior Leaders) at each camp location at one time, and modifying activities to accomodate social distancing and increased sanitization of materials. Camper groups will be limited to a maximum of 12 people (including counselors and Junior Leaders), and individual groups will not have close interaction with other groups.
