Our front gate will open at 1:30 pm. There is no reason to arrive before this time. For safety reasons, we will not open the gate before we have all of the campers located in one area.
Details will be given to you when you arrive for check-out. Once inside the gate, please park near your camper’s cabin and head straight to check-out. You will be able to pack your camper’s things in the car after she has finished participating in the shows. Parking will be tight; please be considerate of cars as you park.
The check-out station will be on the way to the pool. Once you have gone through check-out, your camper will be waiting for you at the meet-and-greet picnic above the pool, before the Closing Ceremony begins. This is a great opportunity for parents to interact with the RRR staff and enjoy performances by their campers.
The Closing Ceremony will begin at 2 pm. There will be a short break before the Drama Show begins to allow time for the girls who are in both shows to change into their costumes.
After the closing ceremony at the pool, check-out will move to the Forty Niner and Canteen Store area. The Drama Show will take place in the Forty Niner.
You will receive an email with a program for the closing day activities. If your camper is participating in one of the shows, you will find her name listed in the program.
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.
In the hot summer months, we’re an all-girls camp, but the rest of the year, we offer year ‘round fun at our Great Escapes for women and Mother-Daughter weekends!
Rocky River Ranch is the perfect solution for your special event! We host family reunions, church retreats, teacher work days, company picnics, Girl Scout groups, and more with lodging for up to 150 guests.
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.
RRR is not just two months of SCREAMING prepubescent girls singing songs in the Grubstake, Free Swim at the river or raids on other cabins, it becomes a way of life that helps guide you through the rest of your life. Not unlike the Marines who are brothers for life, those of us who were campers and counselors are sisters for life and will do anything to help each other, no questions asked!
I can't believe this will be my second summer away from Rocky River. I'm so campsick. I find myself singing RRR songs all the time, and i wish I could be there now! Camp has meant so much to me. Thanks for such a wonderful experience.
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.
This was my very first camp I ever went to and let me tell you it was the best! I only wish I had found out about it earlier so I could have spent more than just one year there. Y'all are an amazing camp and I hope you keep running for another 50 years.
My years at Rocky River were some of the most wonderful times in my life. My sister (Laura) and I still spend hours talking about our fun times there. We still remember our days of swimming in the river, riding horses and water skiing. I can't wait until my little girl can experience all the joy and fun I had as a child for herself.
