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.

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!
We still can't believe it has been 50 years since my mother, Mama Knolk, started RRR. We are so proud that it is still the same as she built it and still has the same spirit upon which it was founded. Our children and grandchildren have had the wonderful opportunity to attend camp and we all can still sing some of the songs when we get together. May the spirit of Mama Knolk stay with all that have attended RRR.
Another favorite camp memory that lives on is the camp songs. I have sung them to my kids when they were babies … and still sing to them to wake them up in the morning ("Good morning to You!"). Last summer my daughter went to camp for the first time (at age 6). She had a great time and is looking forward to going again this summer. She sings camp songs almost daily (I'm ready for her to learn a few new ones other than "Boom Boom, Ain't it Great to be Crazy?" and "I Wish I Were a Little Bar of Soap")!
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’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.
I am still amazed and in awe of the subtle and mysterious way that simple activities and experiences weave together to leave an indelible impression of love ... confidence ... appreciation. They seem so simple there in the moment ... the singing of camp songs, Friendship Circle at the end of an evening program, the Cowpoke/Wrangler drawing, saddling a horse for the first time, scooting down the rapids ... but each song, with each tug on the halter rope, with each stroke of the canoe oar, with each ring of "Goodnight, campers!" a new brush of color is being painted on her childhood experience. From those "colors" spring forth amazing women as evidenced by the many remarkable people that now call themselves Rocky River alumni.
