The Magic of Rocky River Nov 05, 2009
reviewer: April Anschutz from
When I was 8 years old I had my first experience with Rocky River and I loved it so much I continued to go until I became a Junior Counselor, a total of 9 years. From the beginning RRR taught me that I was unique, that I was able to conquer my fears, could grow in ways I never expected, would learn to face life's obstacles with friends that loved me for exactly who I was and to laugh at life and myself. It was and still is, a respite. There is a magic to this place and it begins the minute you drive through the gate. The trees envelope you, the breeze awakens the senses, the horses and many other camp animals give you an appreciation for all that encompasses the universe and an incredible spirit rushes through you making you feel energized and relaxed at the same moment. As a girl and especially as a teenager I knew I was part of something special and was thankful to my family for giving me such a wonderful gift. My experiences and friendships at RRR gave me strength and compassion that I have used throughout my life with regards to my experiences of volunteering, my ability to get through the most challenging of situations with love, laughter and a sense of calm, my love of the environment, my capacity to be a peacemaker and my 'Keep at it' attitude that has served me on many occasions. This is a mantra at RRR and they teach you to never give up, that each step is a success and to never measure your successes to that of other people’s successes. Your successes are you own, to embrace and to be proud of. As part of the Alumni group, I am blessed to be able to go back and help out whenever and wherever I can. When I am there, my heart is full of so many amazing memories and I feel stronger and fuller. I still tear up when I sing certain songs or when I walk through areas of camp with strong memories. These are tears of joy. In addition, my love and appreciation of the unique friendships I have with my old camp buddies and the new friendships with other alumni that I have made, grow each year and are blessings immeasurable. I recommended Rocky River to a friend two summers ago and his daughter just finished her second year and is stronger and braver than my friend ever knew she could be and he credits Rocky River for these amazing traits. She can't wait to go back next year.
