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.

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.
Mama Knolk — what a wonderful and gentle lady. She always wanted the best for us and for us to be our best.
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.
I loved RRR from the second I saw it. The smell of the cedar trees sure was heaven compared to the pollution of Dallas. I only got to stay for two weeks that first summer, which was way too short a time. I rode the horses, shot up targets, and made stuff in the crafts hut. I know I made it down to the river a few times. It was the year that I got my red tie in the horseback department and I was sooooo proud! I got to stand in front of the campfire while the campers all went berserk over my accomplishment. I feel so lucky to have the memories that I do and those are of RRR. I don't remember much about my childhood, but I remember everything about RRR and how much I loved going there every summer. It was heaven on earth.
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!
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")!
