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!
Got some girlfriends you need to catch up with? Round ‘em up and make plans to meet up for a Great Escape weekend of good friends, treasure hunting, and belly laughs!
May 3-5, 2019 | Oct 4-6, 2019
Dates coincide with Wimberley Market Days, our town's famous flea market.
COST: $160 per weekend. ($80 deposit)
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
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.
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.)
As an Escapee, you'll have access to our kayaks, or bring your fishing tackle to hook some fins!**
If the weather is warm, you can take in some rays at our cliffside pool or relax on the banks of the Blanco.**
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! Drop the release cord and enjoy a squeal-worthy and exhilarating swing!**
What's a weekend at camp without s'mores? We supply each cabin with the makings for a campfire and the gooey goodies.
Grab a flashlight and a folding chair for a private movie viewing under the stars at our famous outdoor theatre.**
Spa service reservations are first-come, first-serve starting at 3 pm Friday -- they fill up fast! Complete your weekend of relaxation with a facial or massage and feel your stress melt away.
If you'd like to arrive on Thursday, email us (email@example.com) when you register and we'll update your reservation and add $35 to your charge. Thursday check-in is 5:00 pm.

The experiences at camp gave me a confidence and feeling of accomplishment. First, just being able to take care of myself away from home (with the counselors help, or course) allowed me my first feelings of independence. Being able to try different activities in a non-threatening environment — things I probably never would have tried at home — was a great way of discovering who I was. Then, later on having the responsibility of caring for children by being a big sis to a younger camper and then CIT, gave me a life-long heart for children. Enough so I became a registered nurse working in the pediatric intensive care. I don't believe I would be the person I am today without those many experiences at camp.
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!
The truth is I would not have become the person I am today without RRR! Making decisions for classes at 7 years old (with the help of a big sister and Rue as my counselor), remembering to wear your bathing suit under your jeans so you could go from the barn to the pool without the dreaded trip back to your cabin, remembering not to sign up for your pool class right before horseback … I could go on and on. The mistakes we made there were safe and there was a support system to catch you if you fell. Later I enjoyed working with the campers younger than me. First in WE as a big sister myself and later as a CIT Mom. In 14 years I grew and strengthened my commitment to myself. I felt loved unconditionally and I formed everlasting friendships. Some of them recently re-kindled after a 15-20 year gap as if no time had passed at all. In the last year I received a letter from a former CIT that spoke of my influence on her life. How it made her a better mother and a better woman. I have saved that letter for my children to read one day. I will always feel like Skeet and Sandy helped raise me and they always saw the person I could be! I can never thank them enough for that.
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.
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!
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.
