Agency Information:

Camp Deeny Riback is a place where campers 3.5 years thru 10th grade are nurtured and guided by role models and peers during a summer of exploration and growth. Our campers are exposed to the skills that they will need to grow and succeed in today's world alongside the opportunity to express themselves as children in a safe environment.

Campers have an opportunity to participate in 25+ activities during the summer including fine arts, sports, adventure activities, and instructional swim in one of the two daily swim periods.

The fast-paced camp environment, packed with excitement and transitions, requires campers to learn how to think on their feet. Our counselors guide campers to think about the circumstances of each situation and their reactions. This allows campers to decide how to best approach each situation they are faced with.

We embrace these five super skills:

Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, Creativity & Innovation, Communication & Collaboration, Flexibility & Adaptability, Initiative & Self-Direction

These are tools campers will need to succeed! We are here to help them on their way to becoming the leaders of tomorrow while building memories and friendships to last a lifetime.
