Flying High

As the sun came over Rivervale's massive rock wall this morning, so did our mini campers. After tackling this enormous challenge, successful campers clipped into our zipline and soared to safety.

Lunch: Turkey and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches, Potato Chips, Applesauce, Lemonade
Dinner:Taco Bar, Nacho Cheese, Tortilla Chips, Churros, Lemonade

The River of Dreams

Before bed, the campers got a special treat: popsicles and a late-night swim! You can bet that these kids were tuckered out and ready for bed after playing in the pool for over an hour.

Jesus - The Best Superhero

After their evening rotation, campers headed back to the Tabernacle for their nightly worship service. The message encouraged them to speak up about Christ, even when their faith is hushed by adults. Using the maid in 2 Kings 5:1-19 as an example, our spiritual leaders showed us the good things that can happen when one tells others about Jesus.


After dinner, the mini campers alternated between bible study and our new projectile range. Campers practiced with slingshots and bows, some for the very first time. It looks like we may have a few naturals here at Rivervale.

Rivervale Cookout

The rain cleared up just in time for a refreshing afternoon dip in the pool followed by a special Camp Rivervale cookout at the Tabernacle. It was such a relief for campers and directors to have a sunny end to such a dreary afternoon.

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Camp Rivervale was rocked by several severe thunderstorms this morning, but the mini campers remained safe inside Otterbein Lodge after breakfast. Although some outdoor activities had to be cancelled, campers were still able to have fun with wacky games and crafts. The rain is gone now and the children are preparing for an afternoon dip in the pool.
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, Hot Dog Buns, Macaroni and Cheese, Carrots, Celery, Lemonade, S’mores
