Why Camp Riverbend?

At Camp Riverbend, our philosophy builds “confidence, not competition!” We honor each camper’s talents and efforts. Camp Riverbend is a place where each child can be themself, explore the world and learn new skills in a fun and supportive environment. 

We also work hard to give each of our counselors and staff opportunities to grow as both individuals and leaders, while building their resumé in a fun, outdoor environment.

Roles at Camp Riverbend

In order to join our Riverbend staff, we ask that all prospective staff be a high school junior (11th grade) or older. We provide a variety of roles for our Riverbend staff. Check out the roles below:

Camp Riverbend 2024 Dates & Logistics

Camp Riverbend is a 7 week summer day camp.  The regular staff hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM-4:00 PM.  Camp Riverbend’s 2024 dates are Monday, June 24 through Friday, August 9.  Camp is closed Thursday, July 4.

Training for counselors is held from June 13-16 at Riverbend. All counselors should be present for both training and the 7-week Camp season. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any lodging for staff members. To those from out-of-state we recommend finding accommodation within about 20 miles of Camp. Most counselors come to Camp on a Camp bus, either as a bus driver (which requires a special Commercial Driver’s License) or as a bus counselor (supervising campers on the bus). Bus drivers and counselors receive extra pay for doing these jobs, on top of their regular counselor salary.
