Wow- what a great turn out we had at the Columbia South Carolina Rockbrook party. We had over 25 girls in attendance! Margaret Lyle, Camine and Alex enjoyed getting to see everyone and painting some super cool pottery! Thanks to all of you who could come- we had a blast.
I was another amazing gathering of camp girls (old and new), moms, alumni and other interested folks from Columbia. Rockbrook has a long history of families from South Carolina attending Rockbrook, going back to the 40s when Ellen Jervey was the the director when Mrs. Carrier still owned the camp.
Mrs. Carrier, who was born Nancy Barnum Clarke, was originally from a town not far from Columbia, South Carolina, near the Wateree River. Her father and mother owned the Goodwill plantation, where she was born. In fact, the two histroic cabins on the camp property, Curosty and Goodwill were originally erected on that plantation, disassembled and moved up to Rockbrook when the camp was established in NC.
The roots of Rockbrook grow deep in South Carolina!
