Summer Camp for Girls

(camp song)
Picture a spot of beauty rare
Picture a sky so blue and fare
Paint it with rainbow hues so bright
Then tone it down with shades of night

Paint it with inspiration true
Then let it fill the heart of you
A picture of Rocky River will be
A challenge for you and me


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’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.

During our summer camp program, our older thrill-seeking campers can ride the zip line across the gulley.   THE GRUBSTAKE | Wait until you sit down to breakfast, lunch or dinner to taste some of the best down-home cooking this side of the Mississippi — Texas style! Our dining hall (The Grubstake) and our kitchen staff — the Cookies — cannot be out-done. Meals are prepared with love and care and are always served in hearty portions — no one leaves hungry! Have a unique food requirement? Just let the Cookies know and they’ll be happy to accommodate your request.
