Yes. Every summer we encounter campers who are homesick. Our staff is educated and trained on handling campers with homesickness. Campers are encouraged to participate in daily activities and form friendships. In most cases, these feelings of homesickness disappear within a few days. For more information check what the ACA has to say about homesickness.
The best time to visit your camper is on Rodeo Days, which most often fall on Sundays. For rodeos, parents typically come in the afternoon to watch their child participate. If you are interested in visiting your child, please call the office at 307.455.2885 to let them know and to be sure that your child is not out on a trip.
Final Rodeo is the day before departure day. All parents, relatives, and friends are invited to attend. Most families arrive between 11:30am and 12:00pm. The rodeo lasts around four hours and is followed by a cookout. After the cookout, families are invited to a final campfire and viewing of the summer slideshow. The night usually wraps up around 6:30pm. If you would like to bring guests, please contact the office with the number of people who you will be bringing so they can inform the kitchen.
The food service at TVRC is one of our most highly complimented areas. Our staff works hard to serve nutritious and satisfying meals. There is always plenty for seconds!
Campers will receive an equipment list for the summer. This list can be a bit overwhelming, but don’t worry, there are several great places you can pick up the equipment your child needs!
The camp Trading Post has many of the items your camper may need, including a Crazy Creek chair, lariat, roping gloves, water bottles, and duffel bags.
Please feel free free to contact us if you would like any recommendations for clothing or equipment.
