Rocking Out!

Following in the older camper's footsteps, mini campers took on Rivervale's 35-foot rock wall Tuesday morning. Some brave campers even went down our zip line. These fearless kids won't let anything stand in their way, especially with God on their side!

Breakfast: Biscuits & Gravy w/ Sausage, Tater Tots, Continental Bar, Orange Juice, Apple Juice, Milk
Lunch: Sliced Turkey, White or Wheat Bread, Swiss Cheese, Potato Chips, Applesauce,Lemonade


Annual Amazing Race

From the rock wall to the Tabernacle and even old Oak Tree Shrine, campers scattered across the grounds looking for clues to the final treasure: a lesson about the purity of the Lord from leader Peggy.

Campfire Cookout

Per Rivervale tradition, each camp has a cookout on their last full night on site. Our mini-campers are no different! Rivervale staff treated the little ones to grilled hot dogs and hot s'mores for an authentic camp experience.

Fun in the Sun

To cool off, our junior explorers met up with some of the older campers to take a refreshing dip in the pool.

God's Green Earth

After lunch, campers explored every nook and cranny of Camp Rivervale on a nature walk. Jessica, our nature guide for the week, led the campers down some of Rivervale's most beautiful trails.

Beauty in Chaos

Before lunch on Monday our mini campers completed a fun activity that no camp would be complete without: tie-dye shirts! Look for these colorful crafts in your child's take-home bag!

Monkey See, Monkey Do

This morning our mini campers participated in a meaningful lesson about how what we see, hear, and even taste reflects in our behavior and how the world perceives us. Campers were encouraged to fill their senses with Jesus Christ and reflect his love every day.

Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Shredded Hash Browns, Continental Bar*, Orange Juice, Milk, Apple Juice
Lunch: Corn Dogs, Tater Tots, Carrots, Apples, Oranges, Lemonade
Dinner: All Beef Hot Dogs, Macaroni and Cheese, Carrots, Celery, Lemonade, S’mores

Check-in & Crafts

Parents said a heartfelt goodbye to their young ones this afternoon as Rivervale kicked off our first Mini Camp catering to kindergarten through second grade students. After checking in and leaving the campers in more than capable hands, a craft table was set up in the shade for little ones to pass the time.
