Director's Message


Bruce R. Chapman, Executive Director

Bruce and Patti, his wife, direct Rocky Ridge Ranch, a family-run facility.

The Ranch has operated year-round for over 45 years.  We invite you to visit our website to become more familiar with our multi-dimensional programming.

Our summer Ranch camping season offers a new lifestyle adventure for our special guests.  We include them in balanced activities for their personal development  -  physical, mental, spiritual, emotional and social.  Each week has a theme developed by campers and staff.  Friendly competition culminates with the winners capturing the "Bob Hardy Memorial Cup".  The ending of each week is celebrated at our rodeo where campers demonstrate the skills they have learned in a fun "gymkana" event. 

Parents register their camper with anticipation.  The campers enjoy an enriched experience.  They depart with indelible memories and immediately plan their next visit to Rocky Ridge Ranch!

Advice for Camp

I posted this article on our website but thought it would be a good addition here as well!!

I was reading Erin Davis’ blog (CHFI 98.1) about their time broadcasting from Tim Hortons for the Tim Hortons Camp Day.  Erin writes, “We also got to spend time with the amazing Hannah Alper, who shared advice for kids going to camp for the first time. Her opening tip was the one that touched me most, like the line from the Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram song Somewhere Out There’: if a child is missing his or her parent, simply look at the moon and know that they're both looking at the same thing, seeing the same moon. A lovely thought, isn't it? If you'd like more of this 13-year-old's incredible wisdom (she really is phenomenal) - go to www.callmehannah.ca.”  So I looked up Hannah’s blog and here’s what I found.  Good ideas even for repeat campers!!


By Hannah Alper (http://callmehannah.ca/my-10-pieces-of-advice-for-kids-who-are-going-to-overnight-camp-for-first-time/)

Last year I went to overnight camp for the first time. At first I was really nervous about being away from home for 10 days. I won’t lie and tell you that it was all easy. But I will tell you that after the first two nights I started to get comfortable at camp. I was supposed to be there for 10 days and then my parents were coming for Alumni Weekend (my mom went to the same camp) and the plan was that I would go home with them. But you know what happened? I loved camp so much that when my parents arrived, I asked if I could stay for another 12 days.

Here is some advice for people who are going to overnight camp for the first time:

  1. Make friends with the people in your cabin. You will make new friends starting from the bus ride up there and have lots of people to hang out with. Also, introduce yourself to everyone. I always had not just my friends in my cabin but other people in my camp were my friends too. It is always good to have a lot of friends to get you through the lonely or homesick times.
  2. If it’s your first time at overnight camp, it’s probably also the first time for most of the kids in your cabin. You are not the only one. It will make you feel better to know that.
  3. I was mostly nervous about the nighttime. My Mom’s advice to me was “all you have to do is make it through the night and then you will have so much fun in the day.” The days are so much fun at camp. Remember this at night.
  4. Try talking to your counselors if you’re feeling homesick. It feels good and they can make you feel better. They were also first-time campers – a really, really long time ago, though!
  5. When you’re packing for camp, collect some pictures of your family and bring some tape so that you can have them on the wall at your bunk.
  6. You know the list of things they tell you to pack? When it comes to clothing, bring extra t-shirts BUT…
  7. Don’t take your favourite t-shirt. You will probably lose it.
  8. My Mom and I had a special deal that we would both go outside at 9:30 every night and look up at the stars and say goodnight. When I looked up, I knew that she was looking up too.
  9. Take a notebook so that you can write down the phone numbers and email addresses of your new friends to stay in touch until next year.
  10. Make the most of every day. It goes so fast you’ll be home before you know it and instead of wishing you were home you’ll be wishing you are back at camp.

That is my advice for people who are going to camp for the first time. I am so excited to go to go back to camp and to see my friends. I’m not nearly as nervous as I was last year.  I am going to have so much fun and hope you do, too!

Weekend Retreat

~~Hi Bruce
Sorry it has taken so long to write since our retreat weekend. As soon as I got home I had 2 weeks of studying for exams. But now I'm finished for the semester.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU from my small group members and myself for a great weekend. My group really enjoyed our time with you and the message you shared with us!
Thanks to everyone for making us feel so welcomed, and for the extra bonus for both the ladies and gentlemen to have attached bathrooms in our accommodations! This was a nice treat to have!
Thanks to Bill for the extra ride we got in on Sunday, it was really nice to go out twice!
Thanks to everyone who cooked, my group is raving about the delicious food served!
We've really enjoyed coming up the past 2 years, and hope this will be a staple for years to come.

More Than Just Summer Camp

Thanks so much for our relaxing and enjoyable time.  What a wonderful opportunity to renew and refill.  You all have been a blessing.

Thank You!

Thank you so much for giving my children the time of their lives every summer.  Nothing can compare to the confidence and the independence they gain from going to Rocky Ridge Ranch.  All three of them were so sad to leave camp this year and they are already planning for longer stays next summer! : )  We feel so fortunate to have found this hidden gem!!  I feel such gratitude to each and every one of you for the experience you give our children. 

Thank-you to you ALL!! 

See you next summer!!


~~Hi Bruce
I just wanted to say a big thank you for giving S such a wonderful week at the Ranch last week.  I have never seen her so excited about camp before and she has been to several.  S even cried going home ....I guess next year seems so far away. S really felt like she spent a week with her second family as you all made her feel at home and part of your family even though you all just met her.  She felt that she could really be herself.    Bruce...she especially enjoyed your talks during chapel every night and mentioned that it was one of her favourite parts of camp.  Kerstin treated S like one of her kids and took wonderful care of her special gluten free meals and everyone else was great as well....I could go on and on.  You all care deeply for all the campers and S really felt loved.  (She is a very sensitive girl)
It was great seeing you all again and please pass on my thanks to the rest of your family, your wife and to the staff.  I will include your ministry in my prayers and S will of course be back next year.  She is even talking about volunteering there when she is older.  I have to say, the Ranch was the highlight of all my summers growing up and I'm pleased that my horse/animal loving daughter has a chance to enjoy some of what I experienced as a kid.
All the best and have a great summer.
