Parents love the flexibility of being able to choose or mix-and-match between our amazing camp programs.



  • EXPERIENCE MATTERS! We are proud to be opening up for our 17th summer this year!
  • Enjoying the great outdoors! Almost all of our programs are outdoors where we have plenty of natural shade, green spaces, designated picnic tables, and cool-down water games, making Riverwood the best option.
  • We have a Health Centre staffed with a minimum of one student nurse, an outdoor triage area (to reduce indoor interactions) as well as a designated and supervised isolation zone. Whether your child has a tummy ache or needs extra TLC, our health Centre Staff are there to keep them well and safe.

What People Say

Thank you for an incredible summer. We are already planning on coming back next year. He loved his councillors and was just so happy everyday we picked him up. We appreciate the hard work it takes to create a fun and normal experience in the midst of a pandemic.

This is his 1st time and as a mother I had my own inhibitions about how the camp would be, what my son would do till 4pm and all. The very 1st day my son came back home all happy and never ending stories to share about the camp. He loves his bus ride as well. Today he came back home and said he is feeling sad as the camp is getting over and he doesn’t want that. Kudos to each one of you to plan so much to keep the kids busy. This is an amazing place for the kids and as a parent I know my child is in safe hands. My son is definitely gonna be a returning camper next year!

This was our first year at Camp Riverwood. We were very impressed with all aspects of your organization, from the incredibly warm and mature camp counsellors, to the variety and execution of the camp activities, and finally to the seamless drop off and pick up system each day. We will definitely be sending our children back next year. Thank you for all of the time, care and hard work you put into making the best of what must have been a very difficult year to manage.

Carpool kiss n ride was great! It was nice that there was a directional volunteer there each morning in case we had someone new picking up the kids that didn’t know where to go.
