FAQS

I have another daughter who is attending resident camp during the same session. How will drop off and pick up work?

Drop off will be on separate days which will provide you a chance to focus on each daughter’s check-in separately. Pick-up on Friday will be on the same day during Day Camp Session 1, 3 and 4. During those days, please arrive at 12 to participate in the closing activity for Day Camp. You will then need to wait until Closing Day activities for Resident Camp to begin at 1:30. You are welcome to stick around the pavilion, chatting with your camper or you can drive into Wimberley and come back in time for the resident camp closing at 1:30.

Will the day campers and resident campers see each other during the day?

Day campers and resident campers will have separate schedules during the day, however, they will get to see each other during canteen time! This will be a chance to eat a snack, play games together and mingle! Will counselors apply sunscreen and bug repellent for my child? YES! Our well trained staff are very cautious about sunburns and bug bites. We are very dedicated to making sure your child stays safe and healthy and will help them apply sunscreen and bug spray throughout the day.

What will my daughter do with all of her stuff during the day?

Each camper will have a cubby where she can store her belongings- lunch, towel, swim suit, extra change of clothes etc.

How will swimming work during the day? What if my child is not a strong Swimmer yet?

During the first day of Day Camp, we will have a swim check for your daughter. The swim check will be held by the lifeguards and will give them an idea of your daughters swimming ability. We will have life vests for girls who need/ want them. We will also have a rope in the pool to separate the shallow end and the deep end. We will have multiple lifeguards at the river and at the pool. Our lifeguards are all Red Cross certified.

Can I visit my camper while she’s at camp?

For the safety of all of our campers, Rocky River does not allow visitors on the campsite while camp is in session. Parents are only allowed in the parking/ pavilion area between 8:55-9:30 and 4:00-4:30. Parents may not go past the cone markers at any time during the camp sessions.

What happens if my camper gets sick at camp?

Rocky River takes health care very seriously. Our wellness center is well equipped, staffed and maintained for our campers who need special care, and our camp nurse is on-call throughout the season. Our counselors are trained in CPR and First Aid. Should any concerning health issue arise, a staff member will contact the parents right away.

How will lunch work each day?

Please pack a lunch for your daughter each day. The day campers will eat at picnic tables at the pavilion with their counselors. We will provide snacks and ice water throughout the day.

What if i need to drop off late or pick up early one day?

If you need to drop your camper off late or pick her up early please contact the office before hand via email: info@rockyriverranch.com or call 512-847-2513. You can also contact Hannah Brock on her cell phone via call or text at any time 512-417-0517.

Is there a dress code?

The campers will be very active throughout the day so we encourage the girls to wear comfortable clothing that they don’t mind getting messy in. We will be taking a group picture on the first day so please have your camper wear the RRR Day Camp shirt. The girls are required to wear shoes that will stay on their feet (no flip flops) and they will also need to wear river shoes when they go to the river.

Will there be theme days for my daughter to participate in?

YES! We will have Wacky Wednesday during each session. We encourage campers to participate in this by wearing wacky clothes, socks, hats, hairstyles or anything else that is WACKY!

Will my daughter draw to see what camp team she will be on?

Day campers will not draw to be on a team. Teams will only be drawn during resident camp sessions. Something to look forward to!

Our summer plans changed. Can I get a refund for camp?

Rocky River will refund the tuition minus the deposit until June 1st. Please submit your cancellation in writing so that we can process your refund as quickly as possible.

Attending RRR is a tradition in my family — aunts, cousins, sisters, and best friends all have great memories that we still talk about today. I am waiting for the summer that my daughter is old enough to attend and experience the same wonderful times that I had. My memories of summers at RRR are so special to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Skeet and Sandy, and all of the staff from every session, for the ten years of summertime bliss!

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.

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.

‒  Sara Jane Mitcham Years at camp: 1998-2003

I honestly believe that I wouldn't be the same person if not for my many years at Rocky River, and each year that passes makes me more aware of the grace I found here and the gift of the chance to become one of the few ... a Rocky River girl. To the land of the triple R, I pledge my heart to you!

‒  Alyson Stringer Steakley Years at camp: '82-'89, 1993

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.

‒  Claire Tilton Years at camp: 2002

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.
