The sun was shining and the energy was flowing today at Rockbrook! We started the day with a delicious Breakfast Burrito which gave everyone lots of pep to take on the adventures of the day! Several trips were offered from rock climbing on Castle Rock to kayaking on the Nantahala River. In addition there was lots of talk of rehearsal for the camp play, rehearsal for the camp dance routines and to top it all of- today was twin day!! There were all sort of twin duos and trios spotted all over camp.
After lunch, the highlight announcement was Biltmore Train!! Biltmore Train is an all you can eat ice cream buffett for the campers and counselors. It is an old tradition at camp from the early days. The Biltmore Dairy Truck used to deliver the ice cream out to camp for the girls to enjoy a cool treat. Here is a great old photo from the early days of Biltmore Train. Today the girls enjoyed choosing from Peppermint, Cookies and Cream, Vanilla, Chocolate and Mint Chocolate Chip. Have no fear, for those who don’t enjoy ice cream we had plenty of popsicles to go around. It was a fun treat and it cooled us all down for a nice rest hour.
This afternoon continued with lots more action around camp. The mermaid club members (girls who have completed 100 or more laps in the lake) completed their laps and were announced during dinner. Their efforts will earn them a big Rockbrook Surprise! Girls also took time to complete more friendship bracelets, walk with a friend, pick up a their tie dye shirt or glaze their pottery. As you can see, the days are full at RBC! We sure are having fun!
