Evening programs and Special Events at Camp Riverview are also a part of the traditions that make returning to Camp Riverview so special each summer! Each session will include a special event and a variety of exciting evening programs that campers look forward to every summer! Beach Party Blowout, Mardi Gras, 4th of July, Olympics, Christmas, and Miss Riverview create magic moments through out the summer!
Often, Riverview campers love to continue to return to the same session each summer, while others like to switch sessions just so they can experience all the summer camp Special Event variety that camp has to offer.
Beach Party Blowout is the event of this session …beginning the morning with an eventful Beach Party Blowout breakfast and ending the evening with a “beach party” that is so much fun you will actually think you are at the beach!
While each session is “different” there will also be lots of traditional events that occur each session. Having a sister at camp that we call a “nutty buddy” (because we originally served a “nutty buddy” ice cream at the end of the evening) is a favorite event for every age! Because we are a nut-free facility, we serve a “NUT FREE BUDDY” that is just as yummy as the original! While we do not ask campers to bring gifts for their nutty buddies, most do so… we think it is because we are all girls here and it is just fun to give something to our new “sister” at camp! This is just one more way that Riverview intentionally plans for campers to get to meet other girls that are outside of their own cabin group…and nutty buddies remain friends for years!
We really “re-create” the feeling of Christmas at camp this session only! You will have a “Secret Santa” that you will want to give tiny surprises to through out the few days before “Christmas Day” at camp. On “Christmas Morning” during this session you will reveal identity to your Secret Santa with a small inexpensive gift after we all gather in the Gym and guess who else will be there?! Yes indeed, Santa himself takes a trip to Riverview just to visit all of our campers which are always on his “good list” of course! We have a traditional Christmas lunch with all of the trimmings too! Christmas Skit Night includes cabin skits…bring anything Red and Green or any Christmas costume…you will certainly find a use for it!
