Sundays are a different kind of day at Rockbrook. Everyone sleeps in and comes to breakfast in their pajamas! Afterward, everyone goes back to their cabin to change into their “whities,” or camp uniform, for flag raising and Chapel. Campers and counselors congregate on the hill in a U-shape around the flagpole and silently watch the Hi-Ups (the oldest campers) raise the flag.
After saying the pledge and singing “O, Beautiful,” everyone makes their way to Chapel. Today’s theme was sharing and was led by the Middlers and Juniors. Campers and counselors worked together to come up with songs, poems and visual contributions around that theme during the week. Camp director Sarah Carter closed the chapel service with one of her ever popular readings. This week it was Stone Soup by Marcia Brown.
Sunday afternoon is a very special time at camp when we do a camp-wide event. Campers spent much of their free time throughout the week preparing for the afternoon event “Miss RBC” which is a very silly interpretation of a beauty pageant. Campers compete for the title as a cabin group. Junior 6 took the title with their hit new song “All the Dogs in the Park!”
Relaxation describes the rest of Sunday at Rockbrook. Campers wrapped up the evening with movie night where they all piled in the gym to enjoy some entertainment before Goodnight Circle and milk and cookies.
As we enter the final week of 1st session, we cannot believe it is almost over. This week we are looking forward to all of the closing events of banquet, the play and spirit fire. So many memories have been shared in the past few weeks, and we know the next few days will bring many many more!
