Activities, accommodations and fees vary for camping sessions, and a non-refundable deposit of $30 is required to reserve each camper's registration. Any remaining balance must be received by JRVC at least two weeks prior to the camper's arrival. Camper scholarships from a local church require a letter or email from the camper's sponsoring pastor. For information on scholarships from JRVC, contact JRVC Director The Rev. C. L. "Curly" Stumb.

Two camp environments offer a diversity of programming in the Johns River setting
MAINSITE   Serving the camp since its founding in 1936, Mainsite remains the developed portion of the camp with rustic cabins, prepared meals in the Dining Hall and a range of traditional activities.

OUTPOST   A bit more remote, Outpost offers a setting where campers learn outdoor living skills, lodge in A-frame cabins, help prepare meals, and enjoy a range of adventure activities.
