CHECK IN & OUT PROCEDURES

CHECK-IN PROCEDURES

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.

WHEN ARRIVING

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.

CHECK-OUT PROCEDURES

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.

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.

Rocky River Ranch is like my second home. It is such a comfortable, fun place to be! I am planning to be here as long as possible, and want my future daughters and granddaughters to experience this camp. Rocky River has a special place in my heart, and is a big part of my life.

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.

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 will forever remember Rocky River Ranch as the greatest place on earth! To this day I still remember the nine summers that I spent at Rocky River Ranch. I hope to have my children experience camp as I did so many years ago.

I would definitely not be the person I am today without the experience of camp. I remember being 7 years old and so excited about my first camp experience. I don't think I slept the entire night before leaving. When I arrived at camp it was the most wonderful place I had ever seen. Rue was my first counselor and she took the time to show me around and introduced me to the other girls. I was scared at first, but it did not last long. By the end of the first night camp already felt like a second home. By the end of my first two weeks I did not want to leave. Rocky River was a part of my life forever. In the end what I took away from camp was friendship, love, respect and confidence.
