RVR Events in Maryland

Did you know RVR is much more than a Christian summer camp? Each year we host a number of other unique special events in Maryland. Our purpose in doing so is to create a fun, wholesome environment where individuals and families can have a unique experience in the beauty of God’s creation. This means that all of our Maryland events are designed to be family-friendly and take advantage of the amazing property with which RVR is blessed. Located in Carroll County, MD, RVR's annual events currently include our summer Fireworks and Rodeo day (A Star-Spangled Evening in the Valley) and our River Valley Run events (a series of premier trail run events from 5k all the way up to Half Marathon). Visit the event pages below for more info!
