Sundays bring us a calm way to spend time together at Rockbrook and get ready for the coming week of activities and special closing events. We began our morning with a late breakfast of doughnuts in pajamas-a favorite around Rockbrook! From there, campers tidied up and get dressed in their traditional camp whities: white polo, white shorts and red tie. We have a very special way to tie our tie called a friendship knot that has been passed down through generations of Rockbrook campers.
After our flag raising ceremony led by the Hi-Ups, our Junior and Middler campers led us in the final chapel of 2011. It’s theme of “It’s a Small World” meant a lot to our campers. Many spoke about how they have found true friends at Rockbrook who have reappeared in their lives at another point. Others spoke about the awesome part of meeting new international friends while at camp. We are always surprised each year by the number of international campers who attend Rockbrook. Just this session we have girls from Russia, Belgium, Mexico, Guatemala, and Germany. You never know who you might meet at Rockbrook!
From there, campers spent time preparing for another longtime camp tradition: The Miss RBC Pageant. Here at Rockbrook, the silliest and most creative take home the crown. From dances, to songs, to skits and more, campers do an all-cabin talent followed by a question and answer round for each cabin’s representative.
This evening campers will enjoy a relaxing movie night of watching Tangled in the gym. As we prepare for the final days of 3rd Session, each camper will have time to reflect upon her camp time as well as savor those last few days of summer. What a fun weekend it has been here at Rockbrook!
