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-in. 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 area.
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 along with the time and place of her performance. The Drama Show will take place in the Forty Niner.
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.
Rocky River Ranch is like my second home. It is such a comfortable, fun place to be! I am planning to be here as long as possible, and want my future daughters and granddaughters to experience this camp. Rocky River has a special place in my heart, and is a big part of my life.
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.
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!
Mama Knolk — what a wonderful and gentle lady. She always wanted the best for us and for us to be our best.
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")!
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.
