Excitement Builds for 9th Annual RFM Summer Adventure Expo


Don’t Miss this Free Family Event at Peak Experiences RVA at SCOR!

More than fifty summer camps from the Richmond area and beyond are gearing up to provide area families with all the information they need to plan their kids’ summer adventures.

Richmond Family Magazine (RFM) and Peak Experiences Indoor Climbing are once again partnering to bring families the 2019 RFM Summer Adventure Expo, presented by Virginia Family DentistrySunday, April 14, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., indoors and outdoors at Sports Center of Richmond (SCOR) and Peak Experiences RVA at 1385 Overbrook Road, Richmond, Virginia, 23220.

“We have been amazed by the turnout each year since the Expo began,” says RFM publisher Margaret Thompson. “Parents love having just one destination to get all of the information they need to plan their kids’ summer activities, and the kids absolutely love the fun and games, especially climbing the rock walls at Peak Experiences. We’re looking forward to helping our friends at Peak Experiences show off their newest facility that’s right in the heart of RVA!” Thompson adds.

The Expo includes a free rock climb for the kids ages 5 to 16, plus interactive games and activities from the camp exhibitors. 

2-boothExpo“It is such a fun day for the whole family, and parents will be able to learn about summer opportunities in sports, outdoor adventure, music, and more from area camps and businesses,” Thompson says.

The event is rain-or-shine and is free for families. Food will be available for purchase from Intergalactic Taco Truck and at SCOR’s Turf’s Cafe, with sweet treats for sale from the Gelati Celesti truck. Reusable bags filled with camp info will be handed out to the first 200 families, and one lucky visitor will win the ultimate door prize, a two-night stay at Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center, valued at $825. The Expo will be held on SCOR’s large, covered field, visible from I-95 near the Diamond.

New this year, some of RVA’s favorite family-friendly businesses will join the Expo as sponsors. Mix 98.1 and WCVE are the Expo media sponsors, and additional sponsors are Patient First, Richmond Cohousing, Sports Center of Richmond, Peak Experiences, and Launch Trampoline. Additional sponsorships are available. Contact Margaret Thompson at for details.
