We offer a variety of different types of camp sessions at BR.

We have a Starter Camp for first-time campers and young girls, one and two week sessions which can be combined for up to a 4-week stay, Mother Daughter Retreats, and Alumni Weekends so that there is something for everyone. All of our sessions are all inclusive. There is never an extra charge for camp activities, horseback riding or trail rides.  Camper sessions have early registration discounts – so remember to register early for the best pricing. Get ready for a summer of fun!

Mother-Daughter Retreat

Share all the wonderful things Black River has to offer with your mom! Do you want your mom to understand why you love it so much? Are you alumni who wants to show your daughter how special BR is? Are you thinking about sending your daughter to camp but want to check it out yourself first? Well, this is the weekend for you. Mother Daughter Retreat feels very much like our camper sessions so you will be able to share in the camp experience. Riding lessons, trail rides, swimming in the pool, paddle boarding, quality time together without interruptions of everyday life…priceless! Open to girls 6-16 years old. See the tuition tab for rates.

All activities are optional. Included in your weekend are your accommodations (are those bunks smaller or are we bigger?), meals at the ranch, horseback riding (small instruction & trail ride), and activities (swimming, boating, tennis, basketball, campfire with s ‘mores, crafts, Alumni Weekend T-shirt, and much more!
