RiverCamp 2019

River Camp is Back!

Rivercamp is making its splash back into Riverside for its 6th year! Rivercamp is a one of a kind interactive environmental science camp that provides young students with the opportunity to connect with nature while learning about important concepts in ecology and earth science through hands-on activities. Children, ages 5-12, will learn about their watershed while exploring the natural treasure, the Santa Ana River. Rivercampers will go on nature walks, splash in the river, meet live animals, and learn how to be better environmental stewards. Students will have the chance to interact with zoologists, geologists, biologists, and more!
