“[At the gathering] I was reminded that the Spirit of Rockbrook is ageless, timeless, and omnipresent. And while we may find ourselves having moments where we forget about it in the un-real world, it never forgets about us. It connects us all no matter what “school or name or fame” because at its core, the Rockbrook Spirit has the uncanny ability to gather and welcome hundreds of women (and the select irreplaceable male figures) with wide open arms whenever we feel like going home.”
The world can teach us so much. During our last Alumnae reunion, Phyllis Shaw, former hiking guide and “CT”, lead a hike to Quinton Falls. The ladies trekked into lush landscape and toward cascading mountain water. Nature reveals to us a parallel between the wonders of the natural world and who we are as Rockbrook girls. Just as water grooves its own path in the earth, year after year, Rockbrook sends girls into the world, confident and inspired to forge their own way in the world.
During the recent Rockbrook reunion there were several sets of Mothers and Daughters in attendance. It was such a special experience for Moms and Daughters to finally get to be campers together, sharing bunk beds, singing camp songs and dining around the green tables in the dining hall.
During the activity portion of the reunion there were lots of Mother and Daughter sets spotted sliding into the lake on the water slide, hiking together, playing tennis or making crafts. Overall though, the favorite experience for everyone was just sharing time with their loved ones in such a special place. Sharing the gift of Rockbrook with your daughter is definitely the gift that lasts a lifetime.
