Sundays at Rockbrook always bring a great relaxing spirit to our campers through our chapel service, all-camp assembly on the hill, surprise afternoon event and movie night. This final Sunday of 2nd Session has been one of the best of 2011!
The morning began with breakfast in our pajamas and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The dining hall was full of smiles for this one. Just after breakfast, our campers donned their camp uniforms and finished their cabin chores just in time for flag raising and chapel. Today’s theme was “It’s a Small World” led by our Junior Line campers. Campers sang songs and talked about what this theme meant to them. The overall consensus seemed to be that Rockbrook is the perfect place to learn about our similarities and differences to other girls from all over the world. We are very lucky to have girls from across the United States and from many other countries, including England, Mexico, Switzerland, Colombia, Ireland and beyond.
The annual Miss RBC Pageant took place this afternoon. It started with the talent portion followed by a question and answer session. The entire camp was quite impressed by the talent that turned out today. We saw square dancing (they must have picked that up last night at the High Rocks Square Dance), a Harry Pottery rewrite of Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way,” gymnastics, and two original songs written by campers. The cabin crowned Miss RBC was Junior Three. They sang and danced to a song written by camper Nicoletta. The whole audience was amazed!
Also, the HUPs left late today for their three day adventure trip with Jeff and Jerry. They will spend the next few days trying various adventure activities in the area. Tonight’s movie was Ramona and Beezus. What a hit for girls of all ages here at camp! It wrapped up with cookies and milk.
Monday will bring our last set of activities for our 2nd and Mini 2 Session campers. Oh, how it has flown by! The morning will also include a Looking Glass Rock climbing trip and a tennis tournament with Camp High Rocks. We know our Rockbrook girls will do great and have a blast!
