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 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

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.

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!

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.

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.

RRR is not just two months of SCREAMING prepubescent girls singing songs in the Grubstake, Free Swim at the river or raids on other cabins, it becomes a way of life that helps guide you through the rest of your life. Not unlike the Marines who are brothers for life, those of us who were campers and counselors are sisters for life and will do anything to help each other, no questions asked!

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.
