Sixty years of RRR!
Can you believe it? Remember coming through the archway for the first time
with a head full of questions? Remember how all those questions were happily
answered and how you wanted to stay longer when end of session came?
Let's do the math, average of 100 campers each session x an
average 5 sessions each summer x 60 years = 30,000 campers!
If you were one of our many campers, please complete the
Alumni Form at right. I thoroughly enjoy our reunions, and would love to hear from
all of you.
Love, Skeet (Mary Anderson)
I honestly believe that I wouldn't be the same person if
not for my many years at Rocky River, and each year that passes
makes me more aware of the grace I found here and the gift
of the chance to become one of the few ... a Rocky River girl.
To the land of the triple R, I pledge my heart to you!

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!

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

My summers at RRR were the most special times of my childhood.
I have so many great memories that I'll never forget. Thanks
to Rocky River, I found my true calling in life … teaching
children! And, I fell in love with Wimberley so much, that
I live here now!

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!

I am grateful for the girls that Skeet, Sandy and Rue had
as our counselors because of the character and leadership
they taught me. I love them all. Many are my friends still
and I cannot wait to see them again year after year. We are
all grown, some mothers now, some in interesting careers,
but all of us sharing one special thing in common -- outside
of careers, husbands, family and schooling -- the RRR Spirit
that endures in our everyday life.
