ABOUT

Rocky River Ranch has been committed to inspiring independence in girls and young women since 1953.


Our mission is to create an engaging environment where girls can discover their strengths, learn leadership skills and try something new every day while making life-long friendships.

The ranch's brand, the Triple R, stands for respect for self, respect for others and respect for nature. With these virtues in mind, our leadership program encourages girls to be strong and to become strong women. To foster this strength, we've built a creative, challenging and nurturing place, where each child is encouraged and celebrated.

It's more than just a summer camp with cabins, horses and cedar trees. Rocky River is known for its spirit. Campers today sing the same songs, chant the same cheers, tell the same campfire stories and laugh at the same punch lines as campers did 60 years ago. Traditions like the half-a-century-long rivalry between our camp teams (Cowpokes and Wranglers), watching a movie under the stars at the open-air Corral Theatre, the nutty Miss RRR Contest — all of these create an experience your daughter will always treasure.

Tradition gives kids a sense of belonging to a family, bound together by something very strong and magical. That bond — together with friendships and warm memories — is what our girls take home from camp and keep with them all the days of their lives. And that bond? That's Rocky River Ranch.

Rocky River was a HUGE part of my childhood and I cherish all of the wonderful memories I have. Sandy, Skeet, Jim, Rue, Arthur — y'all were the best extended family a kid could ever ask for. My favorite cabin, Bar K, holds fond memories as well. The stories I have would take days to repeat and the friendships I made were oh so REAL!

I honestly believe that I wouldn't be the same person if not for my many years at Rocky River, and each year that passes makes me more aware of the grace I found here and the gift of the chance to become one of the few ... a Rocky River girl. To the land of the triple R, I pledge my heart to you!

My summers at RRR were the most special times of my childhood. I have so many great memories that I'll never forget. Thanks to Rocky River, I found my true calling in life … teaching children! And, I fell in love with Wimberley so much, that I live here now!

‒  Mollie Cessac Booth Years at camp: 1979-1991, 1999-2000

Attending RRR is a tradition in my family — aunts, cousins, sisters, and best friends all have great memories that we still talk about today. I am waiting for the summer that my daughter is old enough to attend and experience the same wonderful times that I had. My memories of summers at RRR are so special to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Skeet and Sandy, and all of the staff from every session, for the ten years of summertime bliss!

‒  Melissa Ross Crispin Years at camp: 1984-1994

I have said for years that RRR made me the person that I am today. Actually it wasn’t just RRR, but also the counselors that shaped my experiences and helped me be the best I could be. I learned to problem solve, lead others and to be a leader others wanted to follow. I learned to do my part and that I can do anything I decided to do. I learned to say 'I can' a lot more than 'I cannot.' I learned to co-exist with others which helps me to this day. As a young girl I learned what others around me now in their 30s still do not know. I learned to take care of and respect myself, respect others and the world around me.

‒  Hara Chasis Cootes Years at camp: 1978-1991

I loved my counselors, I loved the river, and even learned how to sail on Canyon Lake. I still sing all the old camp songs that we sang every day after lunch to my little girl, who's five, every night before bed. I always end with, 'I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills ...' and then Taps.
