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.

Rocky River Ranch experience

I am grateful for the girls that Skeet, Sandy and Rue had as our counselors because of the character and leadership they taught me. I love them all. Many are my friends still and I cannot wait to see them again year after year. We are all grown, some mothers now, some in interesting careers, but all of us sharing one special thing in common -- outside of careers, husbands, family and schooling -- the RRR Spirit that endures in our everyday life.

I had a wonderful experience of being a counselor at RRR 1960-61 and 1966-67. Those first 2 years I knew and loved both Mama Knolk and Jane. Later, I was there with Skeet and Sandy. I have great memories of all those special people and all the fun times at camp. I'm so glad the camp is still going strong!

‒  Mary Jane McDuffie Dillard Years at camp: 1960-61, 1966-67

I love Rocky River Ranch. It was a place I could go and feel accepted for the person I was — not the person I was expected to be. When we passed under that arch, the playing field was leveled and I was free to be myself, or even to reinvent myself! If I could ride, if I could swim, if I could do crafts or even if my only talent was spitting watermelon seeds, I was accepted!

‒  Britany Beever Just Years at camp: 1979-1984, 1987-1988

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")!

‒  Patti Scott Gillman Years at camp: 1972-1985

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!

‒  Mollie Cessac Booth Years at camp: 1979-1991, 1999-2000

I loved performing on stage and modeling in the fashion show. I learned how to shoot a bow and arrow, and how to do synchronized swimming. I wrote a 'Snoopy' column for the newspaper. In fact, a lot of the things I loved then are things I still love today.
