TWO NIGHTS LODGING

Rocky River Ranch is a rustic summer camp with dorm-style cabins with bunk beds. Cabins are first come-first serve, heated and air-conditioned, with shower and toilet facilities. Bring your own bedding (sheets/blanket/pillow), as well as toiletries and towels (shower and swim). Friday check-in: 5 pm

FIVE DELICIOUS MEALS

We make it easy to relax by providing delicious meals all weekend in our dining hall, The Grubstake. From Friday's dinner to a sumptuous Sunday brunch, you can focus on taking a break, instead of figuring out meals.

SHOPPING SHUTTLE

Saturday morning hop on our shopping shuttle to embark on a treasure hunt amongst 475 booths of arts, crafts, gifts, and antiques at Wimberley Market Days! When you're finished there, Wimberley Square offers more one-of-a-kind shops from quirky to sophisticated. (Plan ahead and you can also shop in Gruene and San Marcos Premium Outlets, on your way to or from Wimberley.)

RIVER FUN

As an Escapee, you'll have access to our kayaks and tubes, or bring your fishing tackle to hook some fins!**

SWIMMING AND SUNNING

If the weather is warm, you can take in some rays at our cliffside pool or relax on the banks of the Blanco.**

SCREAMER SWING EXPERIENCE

Put on a harness and be pulled up by a group of fellow Escapees to the height of your choice – up to 40 feet high! Pull the release cord and enjoy a squeal-worthy and exhilarating swing!**

HORSEBACK RIDING

Our horseback program has been a source of pride since our camp's founding. Our expertly assessed, gentle and well-behaved horses are ready to take you on fun supervised trail rides. From novice to expert -- we will match the horse, the ride, and the group to each rider's ability.**

CAMPFIRE AND S'MORE SUPPLIES

What's a weekend at camp without s'mores? We supply each cabin with the makings for a campfire and the gooey goodies.

MOVIE AT CORRAL THEATRE

Grab a flashlight and a folding chair for a private movie viewing under the stars at our famous outdoor theatre.**

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 loved my counselors, I loved the river, and even learned how to sail on Canyon Lake. I still sing all the old camp songs that we sang every day after lunch to my little girl, who's five, every night before bed. I always end with, 'I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills ...' and then Taps.

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.

Rocky River was a HUGE part of my childhood and I cherish all of the wonderful memories I have. Sandy, Skeet, Jim, Rue, Arthur — y'all were the best extended family a kid could ever ask for. My favorite cabin, Bar K, holds fond memories as well. The stories I have would take days to repeat and the friendships I made were oh so REAL!

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.
