Daily Schedule

Because the number of kids in each age group changes each session, the schedule also changes each session. This helps us deliver the best program to the kids.

Session 1 Schedule 2020

Summer 2020 Daily Schedule:

8:45-9:00 Campers Arrive

Campers are screened as they arrive. Campers put their belongings in their cubbies, and then choose from lawn games, arts and crafts, visiting the chickens, tennis, or free play until the bell rings.

9:15 Morning Assembly

Good morning! We gather on the lawn to double-check absences; Weatherman Joe gives us the day’s forecast; counselors make morning announcements; and we get ready for a great day!

9:35-10:25 First Activity Period

Orcs and general counselors meet their groups at their meeting spot on the lawn, lead campers to their first activity, where they will wash their hands and participate with the group throughout the day.

10:30-10:50 Juice Break

Everyone returns to the Lawn for a small snack and free play on the lawn. Riverlea provides “bug juice” (Gatorade) and cookies or crackers. If we are offering it that day, campers sign up for Free Choice, too.

10:55-11:45 Second Activity Period

Could be swimming, canoeing, tennis, etc…

11:55-12:20 Lunch

Orcs and staff have set up tables in the Shire, porches, and the lawn. Campers sit with their age groups. Riverlea provides “bug juice” (Gatorade), milk, and water.

12:25-1:00 Rest Hour

Campers sit on mats in one of several shady spots outside, where they can read, play cards, draw, and talk quietly.

1:05-1:55 Third Activity Period

Could be nature, athletics, arts & crafts, etc…

2:00-2:50 Fourth Activity Period

Could be golf, kayaking, initiatives, etc…

3:00 Free Choice

Daily offerings change, but throughout the week, campers can choose to do any of Riverlea’s activities, go to free swim, or free play on the lawn.

3:40 Pack-up/Free Play

Campers get out of the pool, get changed, pack up their stuff and take their stuff outside to their meeting spots. Once they have done that, campers may free play on the lawn while they wait to be picked up.

3:45-4:00 Camper Pick-up

Campers are picked up and head home for the evening!
