CAMP LOCATION: Riverview Camp is a summer camp for girls located along the banks of the Little River in Mentone, Alabama, on beautiful Lookout Mountain 45 minutes South of Chattanooga, TN…also 2 hours from Knoxville, Nashville, Birmingham, and Atlanta!

CAMP FACILITIES: Our natural surroundings are absolutely picturesque… tall graceful pines, billowing hardwoods and “river rock” pathways throughout the campground. Girls live in simple yet lovely rustic cabins with the modern conveniences necessary to make camping comfortable and fun. We have a heated swimming pool as well as the river front for swimming and canoeing, tennis courts, open air gymnasium/basketball court, ropes course, climbing tower and many acres of trails for horseback riding.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: A camp for children since 1926. A private camp for girls since 1983. A Dream Come True!!!!

Riverview Camp for Girls has been owned and operated by Susan and Larry Hooks since 1997. As Directors of Camp Skyline in the Mentone area from 1983 through February of 1997, their dream had been “to be able to own their own camp”. When the opportunity to assume the ownership role on this campus became an option, they were delighted. The spacious wooded riverfront property the campus is located on is absolutely “A Dream Come True”!

Riverview is located on the former Saddle Rock Camp for Girls campus. Since the Saddle Rock name had been established as a non-transferable name, the name Riverview was born out of necessity. “Riverview” was chosen because of its location on the beautiful waterfront property on “Little River”, a river that is classified as an Outstanding National Resource Waterway. The deep green tinted river allows one to see clearly the river-rock floor of the gently flowing waters… fresh water bass and brim are often visible, as well. Parents often say that our video and catalog do not “do justice” to the actual view of the river itself!

Cloudmont Camp for Boys was the founding camp on this site in 1926. Although the cabins have been remodeled and the site continuously updated, there are still several original, authentic log cabins, the original dining hall as well as the original beautiful “open-air” gymnasium.

As the campus continues to be nurtured by the Riverview Staff, our one goal is for children and parents to feel the safe haven that is provided for our campers… a summer camp rich in fun, friendship, learning and adventure. Riverview is proud to be a part of a traditional camp that will make each child know that… “We're glad you're here!” and that our dream will be “A Dream Come True” for Riverview campers, as well!

Riverview is accredited by the American Camping Association, a member of Christian Camping International, American Red Cross, National Rifle Association, and Camp Archery Association.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Girls age 13-14 have the opportunity to participate in our Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program. The first step toward becoming a counselor. You will begin to develop leadership and instruction skills with counselor guidance.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Riverview Camp for Girls also offers two Mother-Daughter Weekends each year, one in the spring and one in the Fall. This weekend will be an opportunity for you and your daughter(s) to come enjoy camp activities together. If your daughter has attended camp before, you will both enjoy this "camping moment" together...if she has never camped before, you will both learn to love Riverview Camp for Girls. You can participate in canoeing, swimming, tennis, arts and crafts, archery, ropes course, riflery, riding and more. Of course, there will be time to hike, tour the campus, and just have fun together relaxing. See our website for more details at: Our Camp Website Link: www.riverviewcamp.org.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: The Riverview campus is also the site for the unique and well-known Nature’s Classroom Atop Lookout Mountain, an exciting experiential education program that has existed on a national level for 21 years and in Alabama since 1991. As a member of the Association for Experiential Education, the program provides an individually tailored format for each group’s needs. Private and public schools as well as home-based school programs from all over the southeast attend this popular educational experience. Want to know more? Contact Nature’s Classroom [AT] 256-634-4443 for information for your child’s school program, or visit them online at: Our Camp Website Link: www.naturesclassroom.com.
