Welcome to River Run Camp For Kids Grades 3 Through 9
Ready, Set, Summer 2021!
Registration opens February 28
First Day of Camp is June 28
Our 19th Season
A fun-filled day camp experience in the barn, fields and river in Warren, Maine
Summer at River Run Camp includes plenty of opportunity for fun, recreation and relaxation in the best spirit of an old time summer camp experience.
Our big barn provides large, open space for creating imaginative art and traditional camp crafts from wood burning projects to experimenting with batik. There is room to choreograph dances, produce talent shows and make music. Campers can “hang-out” in the barn playing foosball or ping-pong, listening to music, playing cards, or curling up on the couch to read.
The playing field offers space for team sports, tetherball, capture the flag, and group challenge games. The six acres surrounding the farm provide opportunities for hikes, campfires, and environmental explorations.
Wide, deep and clean, the St. George River is a wonderful place to swim. Just down the hill from the barn, counselors certified in water safety, First Aid and CPR supervise the waterfront area. Our quiet, protected cove offers a great place to cast a line, while the slow current makes it an excellent spot to launch a kayak trip or just float down the river in a tube.
We are very excited to be planning programs, with modifications, for the 2021 camp season. At the same time, we are realistic, knowing that these are challenging times and we may need to adjust our thinking as summer gets closer. Not all regular camp activities will be appropriate when adhering to best practices to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Please check messages and updates on our COVID-19 INFO page.
