In order for campers to receive the greatest benefit from our program, parents are strongly urged to observe both check-in and check-out times. If these hours or dates can not be adhered to, special arrangements must be made with the camp office. Should early arrival or late departure be unavoidable, there is a $275 fee for an extra night at camp. Additional days and nights will be prorated based on the session fee.
There is no reduction in fees for late arrivals. In case of leaving camp early due to illness, the camp will refund half of the un-expired camp fee. There is no refund for leaving camp early for any reason other than illness.
Step 1: Check In
Visit the office
Step 2: Pay Balance
Camp Fee Balances are due by May 1 unless other arrangements have been made. Set up a spending account at the Office, if you have not done so. We request that spending accounts be set up prior to camp in order to save you time on opening day. If your daughter is going to participate in our Trip Day, forms for the trip waivers for Ocoee and Nantahala are on-line and we prefer that these be submitted prior to opening day. Riverview reserves the right to cancel any trip if there are not enough participants.
Step 3: Health Check-in
Each parent/camper will visit briefly with one of our Nurses or Physicians. This is NOT a physical examination…It is the time for you to give us any information we need to care for your daughter and this process will not take up much of your morning! This is located upstairs in the gym BEFORE going to the cabin. (required) . You may not go to the cabin until after the health discussion is completed.
Step 4: Camper Medication
During the Health Check-In, you will need to turn in all medications (prescription or over-the counter) in their original container to our nurse. For legal protection, staff and campers may not keep medications in their trunks, etc. All must be turned into the Riverview health care staff with directions for administration and Medication Administration Forms will be completed for any medications.
Step 5: Gift Shop - Chiki Boutiki
Visit Chiki Boutiki to purchase required Tribe Uniform, souvenirs, or items you forgot to pack.
Step 6: Cabin
Only after you and your daughter have seen one of our health care team may you go to your cabin, where your daughter’s counselor will be waiting to welcome you. Pick out a bunk, unpack and start getting to know your counselors and cabin mates.
Step 7: Explore Camp
Enjoy a walk around camp if you would like to do so. Please have campers back at their cabin by 11:00 for a “cabin meeting” and to prepare for lunch.
Step 8: Say Goodbye
Cheerfully, not tearfully!
Step 9: Drop off mail/gifts
Drop off any mail and or camper gifts AT THE OFFICE.
