Outdoor Adventure Camp Scholarship Program



River Riders Outdoor Adventure Camp has partnered with the American Camp Association to create an Outdoor Adventure Camp Scholarship.

Outdoor Adventure Camp works throughout the year to ensure a wonderful experience for all of our campers. Each year we look to expand the number of campers who will benefit from the program we provide. Outdoor Adventure Camp is a fun, action-packed way to build character, confidence and friendship in historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Camp instills children with the self-reliance, confidence, discipline, creativity and collaboration, these skills are a necessary factor in our children becoming successful, well-adjusted adults. Every year we see children grow in ways both large and small as a result of their Outdoor Adventure Camp experience. Because we are firmly committed to the work we do and the children we serve, we believe that every child deserves a chance to experience camp. With this in mind, we encourage you to support this cause by donating to the Outdoor Adventure Camp Scholarship.

River Riders will match each donation made to the program to enforce our commitment to the cause of getting children active in camp.
