Camp Savings Opportunities
Being so much of camp is about friendship, we'd like to offer you the opportunity of helping us Friendraise. For every friend who becomes a new camper at the Riverdale Y, we will provide a $100 credit to your account, up to $1,000. Your friend will also receive the same $100 credit when they register.
Finally, we’d like to pay you for allowing us to pay a visit. When you host a Camp Parlor Meeting, we will provide a $25 credit to you for every family able to attend. When they register and are a new Riverdale Y camp family, this credit will get bumped up to our refer-a-friend rate. We’ll bring the S’mores.
