Riverside Camp and Retreat Center, formerly the South Florida United Methodist Camp, was renamed in 2006 for its location on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. Our nearly 150 acres are dotted with open meadows and grassy corridors surrounded by a lush forest of pines, cypress, palms, live oaks and other native species. The varied habitat provides beauty and the opportunity for exploration and appreciation of creation, as noted in our motto.
We aim to provide a place where people can come to re-create themselves. Our facilities are perfect for church retreats, family reunions and camping trips, small group meetings, corporate workshops and retreats, school outings, weddings, and personal time away.
Riverside hosts 6 weeks of summer camp, as well as various programs throughout the year. Programs include mission experiences, environmental education camps, faith-based residential camps for 3rd-12th graders, health & safety trainings, and day-apart sessions for adults. We also partner with our community to provide camps for adults with disabilities, men's and women's retreats, and therapy camps for children struggling with grief.
