River Days

River Days are exciting events for the St. Margaret's community. They are integral to our River Program, which is known for its innovation in science, math, and technology. During River Days, girls bond over weekend camping trips, where they explore the many aspects of the Rappahannock River, and learn about the importance of environmental stewardship. They see the differences in how our river flows from the headwaters in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley through the Piedmont and the Rappahannock fall line. They learn about brackish water and tidal rivers, like the Rappahannock that feed into one of the world's most diverse estuaries, the Chesapeake Bay. They examine life in the Atlantic at Virginia Beach and in the Outer Banks, and have opportunities to explore our beautiful region. Learning is natural to river life at St. Margaret's, along with building friendships and having fun.
