Chamber volunteers prepare YMCA Cristina camp for summer

Volunteers from the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce recently volunteered at YMCA Camp Cristina to prepare the site for the summer.

YMCA’s Camp Cristina, a popular Riverview summer camp, is getting better this month thanks to local volunteers.

Members of the 2021 Grand Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) recently joined the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce for a day of painting, staining, building, pressure washing and cleaning at YMCA Camp Cristina to that the children can enjoy the upcoming summer camp season.

Camp Cristina is a 55-acre outdoor center that hosts day camps for students in Grades 1 through 10.

“The natural world provides an almost foolproof place to create new memories, gain new vocabulary of experiences, and new friends to share them with,” said Jeff Caetano, communications coordinator for GRCC. “Camp Cristina is more than an outdoor experience. This is where kids can build friendships and self-confidence throughout the summer that will last a lifetime. It also provides a place where campers can feel accepted, trusted and supported, allowing them to trust and support themselves and others.

According to Caetano, the most popular YMCA Camp Cristina programs and activities include summer camp, swimming lessons, birthday parties, family night out, youth sports, after-school daycare, group exercises, archery, horseback riding, arts and crafts, indoor basketball court, acrobatic course, corporate team building and more.

Camp Cristina is located directly across from the new Riverview Public Library on Balm Riverview Road. For more information, you can visit their website at or you can reach them by phone at 677-8400.
