What Parents Say:

“The BEST! So much so we cancelled our 4th of July camping trip to Yosemite because we could not miss our last day of River Camp”.    – Fay C.

“Our son absolutely loved river camp!  He loved building structures and planting the plants.  He wishes it was a longer camp so he could have more time to build.  Wonderful experience, creativity, fun, learning to work together, share, have independent ideas.  I would highly recommend it to other families!”    – Dale D.

“What is different about river camp is the conceptualization of a project/idea the sequencing of the steps and the final project product lots of skill use: planning, organizing, imagining, sequencing, concluding. – Connie C.

“Very fun and personal. Organized and super creative.  We schedule our summer plans around it! It was such a positive experience, that we might be sending both children next year. Loved it!” – Jen P.

“I would like to extend our warmest thanks. Our son thoroughly enjoyed the River camp. It was a monumental experience for him, and for us. He has had such a wonderful time that we wonder if he even wants to come home to Japan. There is nothing greater for parents than to see our children grow happily. For this I would like to thank you and all of the people of SF school. Please extend our special thanks to Andy Schine and Gregory Gavin for all the work, care, support and love that they have shared. – Steven W. (from Japan)

“River Camp is the most innovative, imaginative camp our son has ever attended. – Caroline K.
