All campers at Rocky River Ranch have four class periods each day. The camper chooses the classes she wants to concentrate on for each week and attends the same class at the same time each day (see new format below). Campers attending a two-week session are encouraged to choose different classes the second week as the content and activities will be the same both weeks.
Programs are fitted to the child, not the child to the program. All classes are closely supervised by Counselors and Instructors. Our program is designed to "grow independent girls." To that end, campers plan their own creative endeavors and spend their days participating in classes they choose.
Our mission is to develop great qualities in young people; qualities such as confidence, critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, respect, responsibility and communication. These skills are going to be learned at camp regardless of which classes they select.
The four activity periods each day are 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00 and 5:00.
New format for 2022!!! We learned a lot from the modifications we made over the last two summers, and in an effort to listen to feedback from campers, staff and parents, we are making a little adjustment to the class format. Morning classes will be individualized and 5:00 class will be done with cabin groups. Girls will make their own choices at 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00, and cabins will rotate through specialized activities (see below for the class descriptions) in the 5:00 hour. We are excited about this new format, and hope you are too!
The perfect summer is waiting for your daughter aged 5 to 14 at Rocky River— filled to the brim with new friendships, challenging activities and, most importantly, lots of fun! Check out our day camp and resident camp options.

I would not be the person I have become today if it were not for Skeet and Sandy. One of the biggest lessons I ever learned in life was from Sandy — I fell off a horse and Sandy made me get right back on. I had no idea what impact that lesson would mean to my life, but I have to say it has become one of the most valuable.

I think camp was very beneficial for my daughter last year. She came home with new experiences that she will never forget. It's something that she is able to share with her friends and schoolmates too. It made a huge impact on her and I hope by going again this year that she continues to grow and mature as a thoughtful young lady.

Mama Knolk — what a wonderful and gentle lady. She always wanted the best for us and for us to be our best.

I’ve told my family that if I’m ever missing, can’t take the real world, think I need to drive away, they will find me at Rocky River Ranch. I’m now 41 years old, a mother of two and every time I turn down Flite Acres Road it is like going home and it makes me cry because I am so happy to be there. I had seven glorious summers at camp and I cherish every memory I carry with me.

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!

I loved performing on stage and modeling in the fashion show. I learned how to shoot a bow and arrow, and how to do synchronized swimming. I wrote a 'Snoopy' column for the newspaper. In fact, a lot of the things I loved then are things I still love today.
