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 May 1st. The required paperwork (medical recommendation, health history, day camp permission and day camper profile) can be accessed through your online account in the Document Center.
The front gate will be open from 9:00 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.
Pick up will be from 4:00 pm 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 noon with an opportunity for parents to interact with the RRR staff and enjoy a short closing ceremony. The program for the Day Camp parents will finish before the closing ceremony for resident camp which begins at 1:30 pm. In order to manage congestion and traffic flow, we ask that all Day Camp families are out of the parking lot by 1:00 pm.
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.
My years at Rocky River were some of the most wonderful times in my life. My sister (Laura) and I still spend hours talking about our fun times there. We still remember our days of swimming in the river, riding horses and water skiing. I can't wait until my little girl can experience all the joy and fun I had as a child for herself.
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.
Mama Knolk — what a wonderful and gentle lady. She always wanted the best for us and for us to be our best.
I’ve told my family that if I’m ever missing, can’t take the real world, think I need to drive away, they will find me at Rocky River Ranch. I’m now 41 years old, a mother of two and every time I turn down Flite Acres Road it is like going home and it makes me cry because I am so happy to be there. I had seven glorious summers at camp and I cherish every memory I carry with me.
I think camp was very beneficial for my daughter last year. She came home with new experiences that she will never forget. It's something that she is able to share with her friends and schoolmates too. It made a huge impact on her and I hope by going again this year that she continues to grow and mature as a thoughtful young lady.
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")!
