Annual Summer Camp Planning from the Comfort of Home!
This long-standing Richmond family tradition has been reimagined for 2021 and will have all of the information you need to plan your kids’ ultimate summer adventures.
Summer camps from the Richmond area and beyond will have virtual booths on display in one handy online location, allowing you and your kids’ the ability to browse this year’s Expo at your leisure.
The RFM Summer 2021 Virtual Adventure Expo, presented by Virginia Family Dentistry, will launch Sunday, April 18, at 1:00 p.m.
“Families and camps alike were looking to RFM to keep the Expo alive in some form for 2021, and we are thrilled to be able to present so much information in this convenient format,” says RFM publisher Margaret Thompson. “Parents have really appreciated having so many camps in one place to get all of the information they need to plan their kids’ summer activities, and it will be nice to have a longer timeframe than our typical three-hour event, giving families plenty of time to browse the camps whenever they want.”
The virtual Expo site will remain accessible throughout the spring and summer, so families can visit it again and again as their summer plans continue to develop, and more camps will be able join the Expo as they have openings throughout their summer camp season.
RFM hosted a drive-by Expo bag pickup for the first 100 registered families on Sunday, April 11, from 1 to 4 p.m., at the Diamond. Camp literature, swag, and more was included in each reusable tote bag, and one bag contained the ultimate door prize – a $100 summer camp scholarship. The lucky winner who randomly received this bag received $100 towards their summer camp fee, payable directly to the summer camp of their choice (summer camp does not have to be an Expo participating camp). Two additional $100 scholarships will be awarded to registered families who check into the Expo on Sunday, April 18, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Families can register here.
Camps can register any time during the spring or summer to exhibit at the Virtual Expo by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
