This morning our tennis, archery and riflery “teams” traveled to Camp Carolina to challenge the boys in a tournament. This is a long tradition for both camps. We select 3 girls from each age group (Juniors, Middlers and Seniors) for each of these sports, and get together for a friendly competition between the genders. It’s fun to see us load up the buses because we bring our own equipment— our sharp shooting riflery team with their guns, the strong, steady archers with their bows, and our tennis girls carrying their rackets. Many of the girls wore their matching Rockbrook t-shirts to build up a little team spirit as well. Most of the girls are a little shy at this event, with the possible exception of some of the seniors. We can report several excellent showings and high scores, with a couple of bullseyes and aces in our column, but overall the Carolina boys won the title this session. It was a fun morning to show our stuff, and next year, we’ll have even more to bring!
Back at camp, the day’s muffins caused quite a stir. Liz created yet another original flavor she decided to call the “Rockbrook Double Whammy.” They were chocolate chip and sprinkles! Sweet, colorful little cakes, fresh-baked and oh so good!
Dinner was out of this world… for a couple of reasons. First the food was absolutely delicious. We had mounds of homemade fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli. The potatoes were so creamy and the chicken seasoned just perfectly, the girls kept coming back for more and more. In case you haven’t noticed 😉 Rockbrook girls like to get dressed up in costumes, but not just costumes you find on a shelf in a store. They like to create costumes, and tonight was an excellent example of that as everyone came to dinner for “Halloween.” This is really a lot of fun because the cabins work on their costumes together, mixing and matching different “elements” to achieve a certain effect. That’s why you shouldn’t be surprised if you see something you sent with your daughter being worn by someone else. Tonight we had zombie brides, cats, Egyptian princess, witches and so many other unfathomable characters. You’ll have to check out the photo gallery to see how all this creativity turned out. Awesome stuff!
