Discover Our Exciting Summer Camp Opportunities in Riverview

At Discovery Point Symmes, we understand how exciting summer is for children. Summer gives students time to take a break from their normal school routine, enabling them to discover new interests and build friendships. Our summer camp program for children in the Riverview area encourages campers to stay in the “learning” state of mind while providing them with the opportunity to have a blast as they engage in hands-on activities and explore new places in the local area and in their imaginations. This year, we’ve designed a program called “Mighty Me!” that prompts children to discover their inner superhero and see their unique talents and traits as superpowers to be used for good. As they learn more about the world around them and develop practical skills, campers will build confidence and embrace important life lessons that they can take back to the classroom.

Our Inspiring Summer Camp Program in Riverview

“Mighty Me!” incorporates themes from our weekly readings of children’s literature into our activities and excursions, creating ten “mighty missions” that allow campers to connect real-life experiences to the lessons they’re learning as they read. Here are just a few of the topics and themes we’ll reveal over our ten-week program:
