“There are moments in life that define you and they should be celebrated!”
The 10-year blanket is Riverview’s way of honoring the heritage that has defined her impact on the Riverview Community! Friends return and parents attend if they wish…as we make a presentation at the final banquet of the 10th year! A “Personal Poem of her Camp History” is presented with funny awesome memories that are shared with the entire camp in her honor! There are some camp families with 3 generations of 10 year blanket recipients, a legacy of love… just as camp is a labor of love!
Over 225 toasts have been presented in the last 15 years…that is over 2,250 camping years! And some of the toasts were celebrating 20/25+ years of “coming back to give back” which would increase the years!
What draws a person back to the same special place for years and years? The commitment of all of the staff to celebrate the “kindness and goodness that is in each child” which is evident in the relationships and camp energy that flows through each passing year! We pray every day for God’s peace to be felt on this campus…and He answers us through the lives of young girls and young women impacting each other!
Thank you God for Riverview!
Thank you for those who come back to give back!
