Family Testimonials

At Rolling River Day Camp, we pride ourselves in creating a summer experience that includes the whole family. Each summer parents have the opportunity to visit camp for many special events including parent visiting days/nights, group theatrical performances, outdoor movie night and Hip Hop Night. Our parents have provided us with excellent feedback throughout the years, many times leading directly to new programming and trip ideas.

Read below to “sea” what parents have to say about the Rolling River experience:

“Rolling River is really a fabulous place.  Like my son says, it’s his summer paradise.  Can’t wait to “sea” you all again next summer.” The Schiller Family- Lynbrook

“I can’t imagine not sending Addison to Rolling River every single year until she is 30! I wish I could come to camp!” – The Miller Family- Island Park

“Thank you for another wonderful summer at Rolling River and for the amazing year-long events that you hold which brings my daughter together with her camp friends throughout the year.  There is never anything half done, everything you do for the Rolling River family is done with your whole heart and whole soul.  We are so glad to be a a part of the Rolling River family of campers.”- The Levine Family- Oceanside

“Because of the amazing experience Julian had at Rolling River, I’ve noticed new found confidence in him!  He really love it there and is looking forward to returning next summer.  You were all wonderful and I cannot thank you enough for providing some happiness during rough times.” – The Perez Family, Atlantic Beach

“Rolling River treats our children like family.  All our needs are taken care of and my children have had wonderful experiences at camp.  Summer at Rolling River is truly our favorite time of the year.”- The Schuster Family, Oceanside

“Teddy truly enjoyed his time at camp this summer and we cannot say enough great things about RRDC.  Every person we spoke to before the summer and during was informed and helpful at every turn.  We felt confident every day he got on the bus with his friends what he was going to have a great day and more importantly, come home safely and tired!  We are looking forward to another great summer.”- The Fitzgerald Family, Rockville Centre

“When we first enrolled Benny at Rolling River three years ago, you made a statement that you are more than just a camp, that you are a family. It sounded nice, but over the years I have become jaded and have come to view a business’s claims as merely marketing statements. It is obvious on many levels that Rolling River IS more than a business to you and has become more than camp to Benny. We truly feel part of a family.”
the Zelenetz Family – Atlantic Beach

I just want to thank you all again for another wonderful summer at Rolling River….I just wish there was some magical way to avoid the last day of camp tears…Missy cried hysterically when it was time for bed tonight. She realized that for the first time all summer, that she won’t be waking up and seeing all her friends again in the morning. She loved camp so much that she didn’t miss one day all summer….WE’LL BOTH MISS YOU ALL…”Sea” you soon!
The Herris Family – Woodmere

“I  wanted to thank you for making Andrew a Sailfish this summer. As you promised us, his counselor was truly marvelous! She was very hands on, and was always responsive to our family and child’s needs and interests. Andrew loved her from the very first day. He also loved RRDC every day and every minute of camp. I have never seen my son so happy and content. We had heard that RRDC was a Class Act- and clearly you are! Thank you for giving our son such a wonderful summer and for making his first camp experience such a memorable one.”
the Harris Family – North Woodmere

“Thank you for another amazing summer! This was our son’s first year as a CIT and I can’t believe the change I saw in him the 1st week due to the support of the counselors he was working with. Our daughter also loved every second of camp and can’t wait until next summer! Thank you for providing a warm, safe environment for our kids to grow!”
the Tapetto Family – Lynbrook

“Rolling River has done my daughter a world of good. Teachers at her school have asked what happened to her…she is now outgoing and more confident. I tell them, “She spends her summers at Rolling River!!!”
Jessica’s Mom – Rockville Centre

“I write both as an employee and as a grandparent of a delighted camper. Coming to Rolling River was one of the healthiest and best choices I could have made. When one sends a child to camp, you can only hope for the best. However, after seeing your operation from the inside, I KNOW THAT THIS IS THE BEST! The care and attention given to each and every camper is extraordinary. Bobby has had the best summer of his life!”
Bobby’s Grandmother – Hewlett

“Once again, I have to say thank you for showing my children a wonderful summer. They grew as campers and children socially, educationally and athletically. I cannot imagine a summer where I don’t hear the Rolling River song each and every day. What your staff gives the children is worth every penny as well as the commute back and forth to Queens each day!”
Stuart Family – Howard Beach

“Our daughter loved camp so much, she will definitely be back for more fun next summer!”
Sherman Family- Valley Stream

“Both of my kids are having a wonderful summer – in fact – they run to the bus every morning – what more could I ask for? My hat’s off to all of you who work so hard to make it happen!”
Camp Parents – Merrick

“We love RRDC so much for Allie that we’re sending the little one to you this summer!! the Hoffman family – Oceanside

“We wanted to say THANK YOU for creating such a wonderful environment for children. Your programs and activities are very well diversified and keep the campers interested and involved. This was our first camp experience and we are so glad it was at Rolling River. We all cannot wait until next summer! As working parents, it puts our minds at ease knowing that our children are well taken care of. The parents visits are a lot of fun and the show nights were fabulous!! Your staff should be commended on their dedication and genuine concern for their campers! This was a great first for all of us and we salute you.”
the Rosado family – Woodmere

“I didn’t want to wait until the end of summer camp to let you know how fabulous the Rolling River experience has been for our daughter, Jaime. As working parents, it is great comfort to know that she is in such a nurturing environment during the day. From the wonderful bus driver to the attendants, your administrative staff, nurse, counselors and crew, we have had nothing but the most pleasant interactions with them.”
the Bernstein family – Lido Beach

“You have made my little girl’s dream come true! Jennie spent her summer in a wonderful, safe and fun environment, just being a kid! She made lot of new friends, as well as rekindling old ones. I was able to go to work each day with the comfort of knowing she was safe, happy and well taken care of. She is part of an even bigger “family” than our own. You should be very proud of Rolling River and how much you mean to the community. You fill a child’s summer days with laughter, fun activities and adventures. We will spread the word!
the Goroly family – Hewlett

“My husband and I just wanted to say how impressed we have been with Rolling River! The organization, the grounds, but most importantly, the staff! We keep on saying it has been one of the best decisions we have made for Caitlin. We are looking forward to being part of the Rolling River family and cannot wait for next summer. Thank you for making our first time with camp such a rewarding one for Caitlin and our family! the Hanratty familyEast Rockaway
