2018 Summer Camps

The Riverfront Swim Club 2018 Summer Camp’s goal is to create the best possible camp environment for your child. We want you to feel confident that your child is being looked after in a safe, supervised, and welcoming environment. We believe camp is a place where children have the opportunity to make new friends, try new challenges and have fun experiencing our action packed camps that will take your children through many adventures. Our themed weeks are full of customized activities that will keep your child busy throughout the summer. They’ll swim, enjoy water fun, run around playing recreational games, try different sports, make crafts and create edible snacks. The exploration begins on June 11th and will run through August 9th. Summer camp is offered for children ages 3 and up. All camps will be held at The Riverfront Swim Club.
