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. 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 $350 per session, financial assistance is available.
- We run 3 sessions for rising 3rd-5th graders, and 2 sessions for rising 6th-8th graders.
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.
