I'd like to say, "Thank you", for showing my daughter a wonderful time at camp! It's all she can talk about. She begging to come back in August. She has even said that she wants to do all the week's next summer. Even her attitude changed, it's much more positive now. She's never been a true outdoor kid until now. So again, Thank you! and she will be back.

All the camp leaders did their best to make sure everyone had fun. Safety was definitely important and it showed. What a wonderful week the kids had. We felt very comfortable with the whole operation and we thank you for the wonderful week. Now all the parents want to go to camp and have fun too!

Nick LOVED the zip line and adventure park. The counselors were, in his words, AWESOME. I appreciated that the kids were automatically made to feel comfortable and I gather they got an immediate sense of being able to trust the counselors which I think makes the separation from their parents a lot easier.

The counselors were awesome and helped my daughter through "scary" parts of the zip line. They were so helpful and super friendly. Even when a strong storm came through and the kids were on the river, they pulled over on an island and made a shelter for the kids, by flipping over the rafts! A+

The whole concept of getting children outside in an exciting way is great! It is a great alternative to the traditional summer camps and a welcome change! Thank you!

I think your counselors are worth their weight in gold! The kids had so just as much fun with the counselors as they did with their friends!

All of our sessions are fun and educational! Children will have the opportunity to participate in all of the activities that we offer at River Riders. In addition during their free time, we’ll teach them the basics of guiding and river safety. Goals for your child include: increased confidence, learning, building character, sense of accomplishment, fun, and friendship.


Activities include white water raftingkayaking, and paddleboarding on the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers (class I-III),  tubing, zipline canopy tour, ropes courses, and hiking (and more!) in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.


Sessions will include a unique opportunity to visit four National Park Service entities: Harpers Ferry National Park, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Park, Potomac National Heritage Trail, and Appalachian National Scenic Trail.


Shuttles are available from Martinsburg, Hagerstown, MD, Winchester, VA, Leesburg, Frederick, Shepherdstown and Charles Town, WV.
