MRV Summer Camps provide a time filled with moments of pride, fun, friendship and self-confidence.  Parents tell us their kids gain independence; campers tell us they have a blast! At MRV Summer Camps we know that both of these are true—and along the way, we create amazing memories that will last your child a lifetime! 

These frequently asked questions are designed to answer the questions we most commonly receive from parents. We also encourage you to check out our updated Parent Handbook (available February 2019) for additional information and we are always available via email or phone to answer any questions you might have. Please do not hesitate to give us a call. If you would like to talk with one of our camp professionals or would like to arrange for a tour.
