Splash into the River this Summer!
French Broad RiverCamp seeks to educate and empower the next generation of watershed stewards. We provide opportunities for river and watershed exploration for rising 3rd-8th grade students. Guided by RiverLink staff, campers will engage in hands-on environmental education, river recreation, and service-learning projects. By the end of our time together, campers will have a newfound appreciation and love for their watershed. Here’s some basics about our camp.
- RiverCamp is hosted in June and July each summer.
- This is a weeklong camp and runs from 9am-4pm with pickup until 5:30.
- Camp is $300 per session, financial assistance is available.
Throughout the week campers will visit waterfalls, national forests, lakes, swimming holes and more. They’ll learn about their local rivers and environment through science experiments, tours, and rafting or tubing trips down the river. Join our mailing list to stay updated our our summer camps for 2023.
Thank you to all of the wonderful campers and families that joined us on the river in 2022! We had a great time and look forward to another great camp season in 2023.
