Here are five fun things to do while at Camp RIO 2023 this summer:

Campers are able to use a mobile device (provided by the Camp RIO team) with coordinates marked all over the campsite to find hidden signs or containers with prizes. This allows participants to learn how to navigate their surroundings and build partnerships with their teammates.

Swimming/ Water Activities
Camp RIO has also added a new swimming pool where campers can cool off during the summer heat. Water slides and water balloons are additional activities utilized to cool off during their week at Summer Camp.

Our camp counselors guide students in the skill of using a bow and arrow properly and how they can best aim and hit targets. A perfect way for students to learn about the appropriate safety etiquette and rules when first learning this sport.

Variety of Activities for Every Child
Campers are also able to participate in sports at camp! We host everything from basketball, fishing, volleyball, GaGA ball, yoga, and arts & crafts. Whatever your child’s interest is we have a variety of activities scheduled in our Summer Day & Overnight camps to keep them active and learning.

Campers can experience regular daily schedules but also evening activities which include s’more making by the campfire, singing and acting out skits, plus evening hikes to spot nocturnal animals like owls and raccoons.
