Please be sure to book your child as an unaccompanied minor allowing Camp personnel to escort your child through security at the airport. Camp provides transportation to and from Washington Dulles International Airport or Reagan National Airport accompanied by a camp counselor and a camp driver. There is a fee for this service. Arrival times should be between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Departure times should be between 12:00 noon and 5:00 pm.

The packing list is appropriate for any length of stay. We provide laundry service once per two week session. Please use a footlocker no higher than 14”. Footlocker.com has an excellent selection of camp appropriate trunks.
RIDING ATTIRE - All campers attending General Camp and Riding Camp must bring their own riding helmet and riding shoes. The riding hat must fit well and bear the seal of the Safety Equipment Institute ASTM-SEI. It is best to have the helmet fitted at a local equestrian shop. If you don’t have a local shop, you can call Dover Saddlery, phone 302-234-8047 and ask for Colleen, website: www.doversaddlery.com. The shoes should be designed for horseback riding and can either be boots or tie shoes with a defined heel. The heel should be no higher than one inch. Sneakers and hiking boots are not acceptable for riding. Campers may ride in jeans or any long pants. Tank tops are not permitted for riding-a shirt that covers the shoulders must be worn.
CAMPER MAIL– Send all mail (USPS, FedEx and UPS) to: Camp Rim Rock, 343 Camp Rim Rock Road, Yellow Spring, WV 26865. You will be told your daughter’s unit on Opening Day. Include her full name and unit on all mail you send.

Camp is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items. No PETS of any kind are allowed at camp at any time, including Opening and Closing Days. Camp Rim Rock is a drug free, smoke free and alcohol free camp.
VISITS AND TELEPHONE CALLS – Visits are usually a problem both for your daughter and her cabin mates. We do not have a visiting day. Phone calls get in the way of your daughter’s adjustment to camp. If you need to find out how your daughter is adjusting, call the office at 347-RIM-ROCK, and we will arrange a convenient time for a director to return your call.
TRADING POST – Each camper has an account in the Trading Post (camp store). This allowance is billed with the tuition. A $30 allowance is billed for a 1 week session and $60 2 week sessions or longer. Campers visit the camp store twice weekly. Parents have an opportunity to visit the camp store with their daughters on Opening and Closing Days. Items available are toiletries, stamps/stationery, batteries, snacks, small souvenirs and camp clothing. Any remaining balance is refunded after the end of the camp season.
BUNK ASSIGNMENTS – If your daughter has one or two friends of the same age and grade with whom she would like to have as bunk mates, we will gladly consider your requests, although we can make no definite commitments.
We will do our best to see that your daughter has a happy and memorable summer!
