We are proud to be celebrating our 16th Summer! Riverwood has been providing children 4-15 years with amazing outdoor country day camp experiences. Riverwood is a fun, safe and inclusive environment where each camper can grow in skill development, leadership and co-operation.
Our campers take home experiences, friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
Eddy Bogomolny is the Founding Director of Camp Riverwood. Since its inception in 2007, Eddy has been actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the camp. Not only does he spend ten months of the year preparing and planning for camp, but each day of the summer he is on the grounds with the kids, getting to know everyone personally and making sure everything runs smoothly.
Lori Bogomolny is the second generation to run Camp Riverwood. Building on her father’s traditions and lifelong involvement in camping, Lori is dedicated to building a new generation of Riverwood campers and families. She takes pride in building personal relationships and is committed to ensuring that every camper, parent, and staff is having the best possible camp experience.
Phil Faibish has been in the camping industry for over two decades, having held numerous supervisory roles, including Director for the past 10 years at a Toronto-area day camp. He joined Riverwood in 2019 as Director, and is looking forward to meeting all of the wonderful Riverwood campers, staff and parents! Phil has a contagious energy, creative spirit and approachable nature and is well-known in the community for his commitment to providing campers with an unforgettable summer experience. Reach out to Phil on social media, check out his #philfies (’selfies’) and say hello as he embarks on his third summer with Riverwood!

As a leadership team, we all work together to provide the best summer camp experience for your child. Our goal is to partner with our camp parents to provide the quality of care and programming that families have come to expect from us for over 15 years.
Parents love the flexibility of being able to choose or mix-and-match between our amazing camp programs.
Camp Riverwood’s superior camp facilities are second to none in Durham! Our summer camp is situated in a beautiful country setting, conveniently located in Pickering. Camp Riverwood is located at Petticoat Creek Conservation Area, on our own private sites. We have many scenic nature trails, washrooms and permanent exclusive shelters for our campers.
Many of our off-site optional specialty programs are located nearby including Rock Climbing, Tennis, Baseball and Swimming.
Maintaining a connection with our camp families is extremely important to us. We understand that parents value timely and effective communication. Therefore, our friendly and knowledgeable Office staff, Head Staff and Directors are available anytime by phone and email to get your feedback, answer your questions or get an update on how your child is doing. Prior to the start of camp, the Office is open year-round to help you choose the best camp program for your child. In the spring, you will receive a Parent Handbook and an introductory email from your Head Staff.
