New for 2017! 

Three-Quarter Day option for

3 and 4 year olds

We are pleased to announce a new option for 3 and 4 year olds:  Three-Quarter Day! Before a 2:00 pm dismissal, our "3Q" campers will have a daily swimming lesson AND free swim time, sports, cooking, canoeing, yoga, enrichment, crafts and much more!  

If there are at least 5 children in the 3Q program in your town, we will provide door to door bus service for the afternoon trip home (bus stops in Hoboken and Jersey City). Otherwise a parent or guardian must pick up at camp at 2:00 pm.   Morning bus service is included.  

New for 2017!  Lunch is served!

 For summer 2017, Camp Riverbend will be providing daily lunch included in camp tuition.  We will serve a variety of kid favorites and healthy choices, with options every day in a new dining hall we will build this winter! Our kitchen will be nut and allergy aware and able to accommodate many food restrictions.  Visit our website in the next few months to see a sample menu

The Circus is Coming to Camp!


We are excited to announce that Camp Riverbend will be hosting guest instructors from the Big Apple Circus during the weeks of July 25 and August 1.  

Younger camper groups (up to rising 3rd graders)  will learn Circus Arts skills at least once.

Older campers (rising 4th grade and older) can choose Circus Arts as an elective 2 or 3 times a week

"Girls and Boys--step right up and be a part of the greatest show on earth!"

Send a Friend to Riverbend…

and save! 

Good friends help each other out. Now there's a new way to help your friends when you and they all enroll at Camp Riverbend. Here's how it works: 


  • You enroll at Camp Riverbend for the 2017 season and tell your friends about us.

  • Your friends are so excited that they decide to enroll and attend Riverbend too.

  • When they enroll, they list your name on the line "Which family referred you to Camp Riverbend?" on our registration form.

  • You earn $100* discount for your summer tuition for each camper who enrolls and has listed your name!

The fine print: This discount does not apply to enrollment of returning campers or siblings of returning or current campers. Discount is not valid if first-time family/camper drops out before attending camp. First-time families may list only one referring name. Discount may only be applied toward 2017 paid tuition. *$50 discount for referred half-day or 3Q campers.
