Riverview Camp is a summer camp for girls located in Mentone, Alabama, on beautiful Lookout Mountain.


Welcome to Riverview Camp for Girls! You’ll be amazed at all you can do as you enjoy extraordinary experiences everyday! We are just off DeSoto Parkway on top of Lookout Mountain in Mentone, Alabama, and we’re nestled in a bend of beautiful Little River, as well. “This is what I’ve imagined a camp should be like,” parents tell us and you will agree! The minute you arrive into camp you are caught up in the excitement of all camp has to offer...and it makes it impossible to ever want to leave! Camp Riverview’s location is only 45 minutes South of Chattanooga, TN…also 2 hours from Knoxville, Nashville, Birmingham, and Atlanta!


Recognized as one of the South’s favorite all-around summer camps for girls, Riverview’s Christian emphasis and exciting programs are appreciated by both parents and campers! Riverview offers both one-and two-week camp sessions for girls ages 6 to 16. Dr. Larry and Susan Hooks are the Owners and have been Camp Directors since 1983.

Riverview offers an incredible combination of unique, exhilarating activities in an oasis of peaceful nature. Traditional camp activity choices include Riding (both English and Western), swimming (heated pool), tennis, ropes course, climbing tower, canoeing, golf, archery, riflery, gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, flag-twirling, sports, outdoor-living skills class and more. You will enjoy evening exciting evening programs, optional trips, Counselor-In-Training Program opportunities and most of all lifelong friendships!


“My best friends in life are the friends I have from Camp Riverview.”
We also offer Mother-Daughter Weekend camps in the spring and fall, which are a great opportunity to introduce both moms and daughters to our campus! Or, Mother-Daughter weekend can be a time for campers to show to their moms/aunts/grandmoms/guardians the campus that is referred to as "my camp" if they have already attended summer camp!


“Mother-Daughter Weekend was not only the best thing I do with my daughter, it is my own gift to me…the gift of time apart in this beautiful place with my daughter…these are precious memories that I will always treasure!”


As a Christian camp for girls, Counselors and staff will begin our day with an enthusiastic “good morning and welcome to the day” talk to our campers in a beautiful wooded setting that we call Morning Watch. Vesper campfires are a nightly tradition on our campus that includes a time of singing together and talks to inspire all. Sundays provide the opportunity for worship services for all in our open-air gymnasium…but only after we have served you home-made doughnuts at a pajama breakfast! We also provide transportation to Mass in nearby Fort Payne, AL for staff and campers on Sundays that are not opening days.


“I appreciate so much the thoughtfulness and intentional planning that goes into each day, each moment and each child at Camp Riverview.”
