Medications: All medication, including over the counter stuff, must be handed in upon arriving for departure. If you have a prescription, please leave that in its original bottle and put it in a ziplock baggie with your son/daughter’s name on the bag.

Snack Bar/Auction Money: Riverside has a snack bar in addition to the meals they provide. Put all auction/snack bar money in an envelope (cash or check made payable to RiverTree) with your son or daughter’s name clearly marked on it. Please do not pack it with their luggage. They will need to turn it in at the registration table at RiverTree when they sign in. The money will be deposited into an account for them to use throughout the week. It is completely up to you how much money you would like to send along with your son or daughter. The following will give you an idea of what is offered so you can decide what you would like to do. Unused funds will not be returned.
Snack Bar: Options include items such as candy, pop, bottle water, sports drinks, hot dogs, nachos and some other snacks. All food items are $1-2 each so a $3 per day allotment for a drink and snack is a good recommendation. Also available at the snack bar are camp shirts for $18, tank tops for $18, Hats for $18 and sunglasses and string bags for $5, and make and take crafts for $1 each.
Auction: This has become one of the highlights of camp each year. This is a fantastic way to have fun and also change lives. We auction off all sorts of items that students can bid on individually or as a group or cabin. It is a lot of fun and students love bidding on some of the crazy stuff we offer. Each year we donate the proceeds of the auction to support and bless a non-profit ministry.This year we are going to use the money to bless leaders by establishing a wilderness retreat for them through RippleFX to help leaders who have been investing in students to have their hearts filled back up.
Summary: It’s totally up to you how much extra money you bring to spend.
Electronics: NO electronics. No cell phones, iPads, tablets, etc. Just don’t bring them. We don’t allow them at Wildside. This includes Middle and High Schoolers. Quite simply, students don’t need them and it actually is a distraction from interacting with friends and leaders and hearing from God, so we don’t allow them for any reason. Should you need to contact your student for any reason, we have some emergency contact phone numbers listed on the website and at the end of this email.
Energy Drinks and Soda Contraband: We don’t allow students to bring soda or energy drinks. They can purchase sodas one at a time at the snack bar, but we have found that in the past excessive amounts of pop, candy or energy drinks right before bed create problems for students getting to sleep. Students are welcome to bring some snacks to share with their cabin, however, the soda and energy drinks need to be left at home.
Dietary Needs: Please let me know if your child has any dietary needs.
