Welcome to River Way

Welcome to River Way Ranch Camp, the multi-award winning California summer camp for youth! Summer after summer for fifty-eight years, we have provided great outdoor experiences and innovative learning opportunities for children ages 7-16 in the safety of a highly supervised sleep away overnight camp.

Since we opened in 1967, River Way Ranch Camp has grown to become one of the most beloved California summer camps for youth and teens. River Way Ranch Camp is conveniently located in the foothills of the majestic Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Our highly qualified and caring camp counselors and other professional staff provide premier instruction to an extensive roster of activities, ranging from horseback riding and team sports to performing arts and wake-boarding. These are just a few of the reasons that we are consistently ranked among the top summer camps for teens and children.

River Way Ranch Camp is fully accredited by the American Camp Association. River Way is regularly evaluated by an accreditation committee and has maintained its outstanding reputation as “one of the best camps in the United States”. By maintaining its accreditation, River Way is committed to delivering one of the highest quality programs in the Nation.

Camp is Ava’s absolute favorite place in the entire world. She talks about it all year and starts counting down the seconds until she can return. River Way Ranch Camp isn’t just a home away from home for Ava. It is her home! Growing up there and making the relationship and memories that really will last a lifetime is why she is the person she is today. She can’t wait to come back every summer and see her extended family!Camp Parent
