Who Are the River Dads?

The River Dads is a 501(c)(3) organization made up of dads of the kids attending Carmel River Elementary School. Our mission is to build a welcoming and supportive community at the school and to enhance the experience of our children throughout their time at River! We work closely with the school's administration and the PTA with a focus on social events and the lighter side of life.


What do we do?

We have fun! The River Dads put on some awesome events throughout the school year!

And More!

We hold monthly general membership meetings where we discuss and organize upcoming events as well as get to know our fellow River Dads. These meetings used to be exclusively held in the school library, we now host them at local establishments in our community.
