Summer at Riverbend Sign Ups Coming Soon!

Summer @ Riverbend offers the best of a traditional summer program blended with the excitement and diversity of a specialty program. Our talented team of directors and teachers include many of the full-time Riverbend faculty.  

Toddlers will enjoy a variety of age-specific activities with toddler-trained faculty including splashing in the splash pools, arts and crafts, music and more!

Primary children create new friendships, enjoying daily Arts instruction, crafts, splash pools and waterslides, sports instruction and more! Riverbend has a strong partnership with the Elm Bank Reservation and The Natick Organic Farm, which continues throughout the summer, giving children an opportunity to work with the experts and explore the great outdoors here on campus.

Our older groups will be learning new skills and making new friendships, cooling off on our new, camp water slide and enjoying everything from ultimate frisbee, slack line training, inter-camp activities–such as obstacle course racing and camp Olympics, sports instruction, international cooking, paper mache, Minecraft/coding, jewelry making, and gardening!

The Summer @ Riverbend staff ensure all participants have a fantastic summer building friendships and new skills. We look forward to welcoming you!


Here’s an idea of a few of the activities we’ve offered to program participants in years past. We organize each week carefully to ensure a variety of experiences, particularly for children who spend the whole summer with us. As a result, not all activities are offered every week to every age group.
