    Please send your child with all of the following items for your child’s comfort and safety.

  • Lunch & Snacks

    Campers will need to bring a healthy lunch and healthy snacks every day. Due to the active nature of Riverview camps, we find most children need both a morning and afternoon snack — please pack accordingly. We encourage a healthy lunch that your kids will enjoy, so that their energy is high and their attitude positive. Here are some suggestions:

    GOOD to bring:

    • Healthy sandwich
    • Fruit – apples, oranges, grapes, bananas
    • Veggies – carrots, celery sticks, cucumbers
    • Non-carbonated drinks – juice, water, lemonade
    • Granola bars, trail mix, nuts, raisins
    • Other desired light, energetic food

    AVOID bringing:

    • Candy, sweets, or sugary foods
    • Soda
    • Food that spoils if not refrigerated
    • Heavy foods that deter from good exercise
    • Glass items or breakables
