Summer Camp for Girls

I loved performing on stage and modeling in the fashion show. I learned how to shoot a bow and arrow, and how to do synchronized swimming. I wrote a 'Snoopy' column for the newspaper. In fact, a lot of the things I loved then are things I still love today.

I am still amazed and in awe of the subtle and mysterious way that simple activities and experiences weave together to leave an indelible impression of love ... confidence ... appreciation. They seem so simple there in the moment ... the singing of camp songs, Friendship Circle at the end of an evening program, the Cowpoke/Wrangler drawing, saddling a horse for the first time, scooting down the rapids ... but each song, with each tug on the halter rope, with each stroke of the canoe oar, with each ring of "Goodnight, campers!" a new brush of color is being painted on her childhood experience. From those "colors" spring forth amazing women as evidenced by the many remarkable people that now call themselves Rocky River alumni.

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.

Quicktime Player Required

All campers at Rocky River Ranch have four activity periods each day. The camper chooses the activities she wants to concentrate on for each week and attends the same class at the same time each day. Campers attending a two-week session may choose different activities the second week.

Programs are fitted to the child, not the child to the program. All activities are closely supervised by Counselors and Instructors.

We provide a free-choice program so campers can plan their own creative endeavors.






In addition to singing team songs at each other after lunch, there's always a lot of excitement on Sports Day when the "Cowpokes" and "Wranglers" stage competitive games and relays.

At the close of each session, parents are treated to a Watershow at the pool and an exhibition of Western Riding in the large arena, where campers present new skills they've learned.
