Riverside Summer Programs Summer Theme: “Restored”

The theme at Riverside this summer is “Restored”. Our theme verse comes from Psalm 80:3, “Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.” God’s amazing love for us is shown through His Son, Jesus Christ, and God desires to restore us through offering His great grace and forgiveness. God’s love for us and His hope to restore us is a beacon of hope and great love for our daily lives! The summer will also be filled with the stuff you love about Riverside. CAUTION: The following list may cause severe over excitement. Read with care! Great counselors, music, skits, carpet ball, nuke’em, ranch camp, canoe trips, challenge course, game of the day, 2@2, bonkers, canoeing the lagoon, horseback riding, the mime, great games, great friends, and many good times filled with the love of Jesus! Wow, you sure can’t beat that, can you? No, you can’t. So, to experience all of that and more, check out the rest of this program guide and sign up for a week of camp this summer! It may be the best week of your life! If you have been a camper many times, one time, or never, we promise that this will be a great, great summer of living in, and learning about, the love of Jesus.
