River Days

River Days is a favorite pastime for many alumnae and has been recognized by Virginia Living magazine as a program of innovation in science, math, and technology. Girls bond as a class over these weekend camping trips, where they examine different parts of the Rappahannock River: the headwaters in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley; freshwater through Piedmont and the Rappahannock Fall Line; brackish water (or estuary) in Tidal Rivers, like the Rappahannock River, and the Chesapeake Bay; and, finally seawater in Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks. Environmental education is as important to the River Days experience as is building friendships and having fun.
