Happy Holidays & Cheers to 2023!

Marissa Allaben16 Dec 2022

Dear Camp Families,

It’s officially the holiday season and almost time to close out 2022.  What a year it has been! We “sail-a-brated” our 30th anniversary voyage with a summer of amazing activities, incredible staff and over-the-top special events.  Who can forget pirates roaming the campus, the biggest Carnival ever and our Color War leaders rocking out to a lip sync battle on stage?!  So many memories, so many friendships…we can’t wait to do it all again in 2023.

As we look forward to the New Year, we are excited for new activities, revamped programs and facility updates.  Read below for just some of the new offerings for 2023:

  • “Stingray Cay”, the brand new “Sand Playground”: New custom tropical-themed playground, “lifeguard” tower, custom play beach snack shack, new signage and fencing
  • “Latitude Tech Lounge”, the renovated “Computer Room”: Full renovation including floors and walls, flex seating, interactive tablet and gaming systems, and use as the CIT Lounge
  • Newly Revised “Cooking” Program for Lower Camp: New lessons plans to focus on health eating habits, nutrition, food groups and a dramatic play food market
  • Revised “Hobby” Program for 3/4 Grade: Campers can select a “track”- Arts, Sports or Tech to follow their interests
  • Weekly Monday Trips for 3/4 Grade: 3/4 grade campers will go off campus every Monday for a local activity or larger trip
  • Full Division Navigator (5-8 Grade) Tuesdays and Thursdays: The entire Navigator Division will travel together for large trips Tuesday and Thursday
  • Return of the Navigator/CIT Overnight and Broadway Show Optional Trips: We’re excited to bring back the Overnight Trip and Broadway Show! The Overnight trip will be to Hershey Park and the Broadway Show is still being finalize.  More information will be sent out after the New Year.
  • New “Campanion” App: Our new app is connected to Camp In Touch so you can complete your camp forms on your phone.  The app also features face-finder for photos, push notifications and text messages and a news scroll.  Search for “Campanion” on the App Store and use your Camp In Touch email to log in.

Check our social pages (Facebook.com/rollingriver.com , Instagram @rollingriverdaycamp or @rollingriverevents) and TikTok (@rollingriver) for photos, videos and more updates about the new programs and facilities.

The Leadership Team is also busy finalizing the off-campus trips and special events for the 2023 Summer Calendar. We have some incredible theme days coming up and we can’t wait to share! The calendar will be released in late winter.  If your child is signed up for a Flex Program, your camp dates will be due 4-5 weeks after the calendar is posted.

Even though the first day of summer camp is still 6 months away, we are open year round for many activities and events! Check out the list below of all the ways you can stay connected with camp over the next few months in 2023:

  • Winter Character Events- Queen of Hearts Valentines Day Tea Party (Saturday, February 4, 2023) and Spidey’s Amazing Friends (Saturday, March 4, 2023)

To celebrate the holiday season, the Camp Office will be closed from Saturday, December 17, 2022 to Tuesday, January 3, 2023.  We thank you for your ongoing support in 2022- we are already off to record enrollment for 2023! For the few spots that still remain, remember that you earn $50 per camper who enrolls due to your recommendation.  Continue to spread the word!

A happy and healthy holiday season from our family to yours, “sea” you in 2023,
