SUMMER CAMP

Located in the heart of the beautiful Texas hill country in Wimberley,
Rocky River Ranch has been operating as a private summer camp for girls since 1953.

We are a summer camp offering three different session lengths, a wide variety of classes and both day and overnight programs.

DAY CAMP    RESIDENT CAMP


If your daughter could design a perfect summer, it would probably include plenty of friends, new things to do every day and a place to cool off when the sun gets too hot. The perfect summer is waiting for your daughter at Rocky River — filled to the brim with new friendships, challenging activities and, most importantly, lots of fun!

The Rocky River experience, while enriching your daughter's childhood with a sense of accomplishment and independence, will also offer her a treasure of wonderful memories she will carry for a lifetime — of friends, laughter, songs, and campfires.

Our hill country setting, expert staff, and long-held traditions combine to create remarkable and memorable summers for Rocky River campers.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our beloved camp and look forward to seeing your daughter at Rocky River this summer!

We are accredited by the American Camp Association and, more importantly, regarded by past and present campers as The Best Place on Earth!

Rocky River Ranch experience

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.

I had a wonderful experience of being a counselor at RRR 1960-61 and 1966-67. Those first 2 years I knew and loved both Mama Knolk and Jane. Later, I was there with Skeet and Sandy. I have great memories of all those special people and all the fun times at camp. I'm so glad the camp is still going strong!

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.

Attending RRR is a tradition in my family — aunts, cousins, sisters, and best friends all have great memories that we still talk about today. I am waiting for the summer that my daughter is old enough to attend and experience the same wonderful times that I had. My memories of summers at RRR are so special to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Skeet and Sandy, and all of the staff from every session, for the ten years of summertime bliss!

‒  Melissa Ross Crispin Years at camp: 1984-1994

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.

‒  Stephanie Shupp Wilson Years at camp: 1978-1983

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!
