Tools To Help You Plan Your Session(s)
Our Short-Term one week sessions are perfect opportunities to experience camp for the first time. While most of our campers attend for our Long-Term Two Week camps, the thrill of being at Riverview for the first time is quickly replaced with “I can’t wait to go back next summer”!
Session M is our only Short-Term session with a 3-HOUR RIDING PROGRAM. In addition to THE 3-hour riding, she will choose 3 other activities for a fun-filled afternoon. OR, choose Session A and choose up to 6 activities. Of course, she can choose a 1-hour Riding Class as one of those!
This discount is announced each summer and varies, but is valid on applications received before September 15 and voids all other discounts.
For applications received between September 15 and December 1.
- $25 for short-term sessions
- $50 for long-term sessions.
For girls that attend more than one session in the same summer. $35 discount for each additional short-term session; $75 discount for each additional long-term session.
After the first girl from a family registers, each sister from that family receives a 10% discount.
Pre-registration Discount voids sister discount.
For girls ages 13-16 only. Get the opportunity to be a camper and participate in our WCIT Program; help set and wait dining room tables at meals. Attend camp at a discounted rate as a Working-Counselor-In-Training, a very high profile position; everyone knows who you are! Call 800-882-0722 for a CIT packet and WCIT application. Limited Spaces: Only 8 are accepted each 2 week session. WCIT $500 discount voids all other discounts.
What Our Campers Are Saying
Don't just take it from us, let our campers do the talking!
There is something so special about Riverview; about getting to go away for two weeks every summer and learn so much more about myself in those two weeks than I would ever learn in the other 50 weeks away from camp.
The community we experienced is how I believe God intended for us to live in community with each other. The peace, rest, joy, encouragement, and love poured over us at Riverview is something we grasped on to as campers. God’s exuberant love fills this special camp in Mentone, Alabamain a way that words cannot express.
I am very thankful for what Riverview has done for me. In my daily life often times I find myself wishing I could be at camp. The love and joy I feel while I am at Riverview constantly draws me back. Nothing else in my life has shaped me more into who I am now than the role models and friends I have gained from Riverview and it is something I will cherish forever.
Please submit your application as soon as possible. We will take campers on a first-come basis and on a space available basis. If it is necessary for you to change a session later in the year, we will do our best to accommodate you.
THERE IS NOT A DEADLINE and we continue taking applications until spaces are unavailable. You will be notified quickly if you have to be placed on a waiting list and we will hold your application in order of arrival until a space is open and then process your application. If you have additional application questions, please call us at 800-882-0722 so we can help you.
Early Registration Discounts
If you take advantage of early registration, the above schedules may work perfectly for you. We also offer an innovative automatic billing option that you can take advantage of by submitting your application online.
If a cancellation is made before May 15 all fees are returned except a $250 processing fee. After May 15 half of the camp fee will be returned. However, the non-refundable amounts may be transferred to the following year for the same camper or a sister.
For session changes after May 15 that reduce the fee, the credit balance may be transferred for trips or transportation fees and the following year registration.
When do I submit an application?
Are there any discounts for early enrollment?
What if my child needs to arrive early or stay late?
Early arrival: Should early arrival be unavoidable there is a $275 fee for one extra night in camp. Additional days/nights will be pro-rated based on the session fee.
Late departure: Extended days/nights past the regular check-out day of the regularly scheduled session will be prorated based on the session fee.
What are the payment options for camp?
Will I receive a refund if my child does not attend the full session?
Early departure: In case of leaving camp early due to documented physical illness, the camp will credit the unused camp fee as a pre-registration deposit for the next year. Otherwise, there is no refund or credit for any other early departure reason.
What if I have to cancel my child’s camp session?

How are the one-week sessions and two-week sessions structured?
One-week or two-weeks or more…what is best for my child?
Both one-week and two-week campers will enjoy the experience and benefits that camp offers. Most of our campers attend a two-week session, though we have one-week campers who attend each session.If possible, we recommend that your camper attends for two-weeks. Campers tend to get “settled in” during the first week and the following week they spend more time developing skills in activities, making stronger friendships and enjoying the feeling of “my camp”. While this experience begins and is meaningful in the one-week program, it is firmly absorbed in the two-week progression. If she initially signs up for one week and wants to extend her stay, you may add on another week, if there is a space available! Each session we have campers who are multi-session campers who attend three, four, five, six and even eight weeks. Multi-session campers enjoy a chaperoned excursion between sessions to nearby Chattanooga.
What if I have one child that I want to send for two weeks and another child that I wish to send for one week?
What are the transportation options to camp?
My daughter is a younger camper; will her daily needs be met like they are at home?
We understand that the younger camper needs more guidance, direction and personal-care time. Counselors are trained to assist the younger children with their daily needs, including personal hygiene, scheduling and meal times. We have programs in place to make this an easy transition for your young child. Please let us know any specifics about your child’s daily needs…we are here to help! Your child may find it helpful if you organize her clothing in Ziploc bags labeled by day or evening (include t-shirt, shorts, underwear, socks) to assist with her morning and evening routines. Also please send Velcro tennis shoes to make her camp life easier! Younger campers will need to practice washing her hair in the shower before she comes to camp. These recommendations will just make camp life easier for the young camper!
What are some of the personal benefits of attending Riverview?
What if I want to give camp or camp items as a “gift for a special occasion”?
