Riverside Summer Camp 2015 Theme is: Transformed!

Arrival Times and Information

Arrival Information

1. Registration (3:30 - 4:45pm)

Please do not arrive before 3:30pm because the staff is involved in meetings and program preparation until then. The biggest rush is during the first half hour. Arriving later in the registration time can actually save you time. Please wait until after 3:30pm.

2. Moving In

As you drive into camp, you will be greeted by staff members who will direct you to check in at the Dining Hall or your cabin.

3. Check In

(*See below for Express Check-in eligibility*)
All campers must check in with the registrars in the Dining Hall. Please have your financial sheet and any balance due available.

4. Medication

You will also check in with the nurse and turn in all prescription and over-the-counter medications. Please have all medications in original containers. Medication release form must accompany EACH medication. Please feel free to copy form.

5. Camp Store

(*See below for Express Check-in eligibility*)
Money (we suggest between $10-$50) should be deposited at check-in time. The Camp Store has a wide variety of candy, soda, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, disposable cameras, toothbrushes, shampoo, etc. Projects created at our Arts and Crafts area, or as we call it, Art Fun!, have a small fee to cover the cost. This fee will also be deducted from the camper's Camp Store balance.

6. Horseback Riding (not Ranch Campers, Alpha Campers, Intermediate Adventure, or High Adventure)

(*See below for Express Check-in eligibility*)
Any camper wanting to ride during FREE TIME should bring $10 to be paid at registration, separate from your "balance due." Juniors through Senior High are eligible to ride. Long pants and shoes (not sandals) are required. Rides are limited to one per camper.

7. Slingshot Paintball (not Alpha Campers, Juniors, Intermediate Adventure, or High Adventure )
