We understand how important dropping your child off at camp is. We want to help relieve the anxiety of drop off and make the process flow as seamlessly as possible. In order to make the first day easy, we require all balances and paperwork be turned in to our office no later than June 1st. The required paperwork (medical recommendation, health history, day camp permission and day camper profile) can be accessed through your online account.
The front gate will be open from 8:55 am to 9:30 am. Please park in the parking lot just inside the gate and walk your camper to the pavilion. Since resident camp will be going on at the same time, we will not allow cars or parents to enter past the parking lot. If you are running late please contact the Day Camp Director to make arrangements. After you’ve signed your daughter in, checked the announcement board for daily announcements and told her goodbye, you will have completed the check-in process and are free to leave. On the first day of camp, please bring any necessary medication and discuss special medical instructions or concerns with the Day Camp Director.
IN ORDER TO CHECK OUT, YOU (OR ANY AUTHORIZED PICK-UP PERSON) MUST HAVE A PHOTO ID
All authorized persons must be listed on your online RRR account. Pick up will be from 4:00 am to 4:30 pm. Please park in the parking lot and check your daughter out at the pavilion with a photo ID. If you need to pick up your camper earlier than 4:00, please contact the Day Camp Director to make arrangements.
All sessions will end on Friday at 12:00 with an opportunity for parents to interact with the RRR staff and enjoy a short closing ceremony. Day campers and their parents will be done before the closing ceremony for resident camp which begins at 1:30. In order to manage congestion and traffic flow, we ask that all day camp families are out of the parking lot by 1:00.
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.
RRR gives young women the chance to excel in areas where they may not have ever had a chance to before … and an opportunity to gain self esteem and confidence. These are such amazing and important gifts that will stay with campers their entire lives. This is why RRR will forever be a "home" to its campers. A place where they feel accepted, and loved and special.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Wow! I just spent ten amazing weeks at Rocky River. It was a great learning experience. My first job also! I had a wonderful time working with the counselors and the kids. I already miss it! I miss singing camp songs too!
