Preparing for Camp

Preparing for Camp


Camp will be a fun and safe experience, as long as you come prepared.

Please make sure your belongings are labelled. Riverside Bible Camp will not be responsible for lost or stolen articles. However, labelling your items makes it more likely it can be returned to you. We recommend Mabel's Labels as a source of inexpensive personalized iron-on fabric labels.
