Classes for Camp Riverbend are offered for children ages 12 months (by June 1, 2015) through 7 years (children currently attending 1st grade). 2nd graders may be enrolled in Science Camp IF space allows and the younger siblings are enrolled.
We will offer 2 Sessions during Camp Riverbend 2015:
Session 1: June 16 - July 2
Session 2: July 7 - July 23
ATTEND ONE OR BOTH SESSIONS!
Classes meet from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays. All ages attend the same schedule.
Teachers will provide creative age-appropriate activities in a loving, Christian environment. Camp Riverbend will be full of nature and discovery activities which will encourage higher thinking and problem solving while promoting positive social interactions in a safe, caring environment. Activities will include indoor center play, outdoor play and recreation, story time, creative movement and music, which will include simple tumbling, imaginative play, obstacle courses, non-competitive games, songs, body movement and an introduction to rhythm instruments. Chapel will be held weekly for children ages 3 and older. Special activities will be planned for the children including splash days, picnics, special guests and a pizza & popsicle party.
What to Bring
Parents are responsible for providing a nutritious snack and lunch each day. Jarred baby food and bottles will not be permitted in any age group. Toddlers should bring finger foods and be able to drink from a spill proof cup. Children should also bring a labeled water bottle each day to stay well hydrated on the playground. Riverbend Christian School reserves the right to limit or ban any food, such as nut products or foods considered to be choking hazards, on a class by class basis. Provide disposable diapers for non-potty trained children and at least one change of clothes for children up to 4 years. Depending on enrollment, children under age 2 may nap during the camp day, so please be prepared to provide blanket, lovey, pacifier or other items needed for nap time. Please provide sunscreen before bringing your child to class. Label every item your child brings to school with a permanent marker. Please dress children in comfortable clothing in which they can manipulate. All walking children must wear closed toed shoes (no flip flops or sandals).
Children CURRENTLY attending elementary school will be a part of our Science Camp. Our school-aged children will be introduced to a wide variety of experiments and wonders. From glow in the dark discoveries to mentos geysors to quicksand, your child is sure to learn something new this summer. We will once again have two science classes which will work together on various experiments and activities. Enrollment is limited, so if the classes fill before registration ends, we will begin a separate wait list for science camp and will admit additional children only if a child withdraws.
Registration for Camp Riverbend began on February 23. At this time there are only spots remaining in our School-aged Science Camp (currently attending Kinder, 1st or 2nd grade). For more information about our programs or to get on the wait list, please e-mail Alicia at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the on-line form on our Registration Page.

Tuition & Fees
Tuition for Camp Riverbend 2015 for the same child attending BOTH sessions is $500. To attend either Session 1 OR Session 2, the tuition is $300. At the time of enrollment, $300 per child is due to secure placement. Any remaining camp balance, if any, is due in full by Friday, May 1, 2015.
In the event of withdrawal, the $300 deposit minus a $50 processing fee per child will be refunded if the school office is notified in writing by Friday, May 1, 2015. If a child is withdrawn from camp after May 1, no refund will be given.
There are no fees to be added to the camp wait list.

A registration form, emergency and health forms are required for each child attending Camp Riverbend.
If your child is currently enrolled at Riverbend Christian School, we will transfer your child's records automatically. The 2-page registration form is due at the time of enrollment. If your child is not currently enrolled in our program, health and emergency paperwork will also be required. The Enrollment packet link is above under "Registration".
During our camp program, we hire teenage aides to assist the lead teachers in the classroom. Teenagers are never left unattended with the children but are there to help with classroom activities and retrieve art and resource supplies. The campers really enjoy having a "big kid" in their classroom. Priority in hiring will be given to aides who can work both sessions of the camp program.
