Welcome to Rockbrook Camp for Girls

Rockbrook is a sleepaway summer camp for girls located in the “heart of a wooded mountain” in western North Carolina. Founded over 100 years ago in 1921, our summer camp continues to provide an exciting and enriching, fun and formative, camp experience for girls and teens ages 6 – 16.

A Unique Camp Experience for Girls

Rockbrook provides a unique overnight summer camp program of recreation, adventure, creativity and fun. From horseback riding, whitewater rafting, pottery, and swimming to camp fires and exploring a chilly mountain stream, each day at camp is filled with new experiences and great opportunities to develop lasting friendships.
