Our good friend Lilly Sagar sent a report from Lancaster, England where she is studying abroad this semester at University of Lancaster. She is having a great time so far, meeting people from all over the world. Her classes start next week, so she is enjoying traveling and seeing the sights before the hard work begins. Former Rockbrook counselor Anna Wells is also studying in Lancaster- maybe they can teach some Rockbrook songs to their fellow students!
Come join us for a paint your own pottery party this Sunday, October 2 in Columbia, SC at The Madd Platter Pottery Studio from 3-5pm.

Call us at 828-884-6151 if you would like to attend.
Everyone be on the lookout for the late September newsletter that will be in your mailbox soon. It is filled with all the latest from Rockbrook. If you have news for us just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love to hear from you all.
Hey there fellow Rockbrookers! We hope the new school year is going well for everyone, though we are sure you all miss camp just as much as we do. Things are going great here in Brevard. We have had some nice weather for all of the annual fall festivals happening here in Western North Carolina. Fall is always a beautiful and exciting time of year in this part of the country.
With all of this wonderful weather, it puts us in the mood for some adventure. Camine just returned from Vail, CO where she was in the wedding of her best Rockbrook friend Tracy Phelps. Next, she is headed on a sea kyaking trip to the Outer Banks,unless Ophelia gets in the way. Charlotte is going to fly up to Boston soon for a college reunion. Leah is headed down to Charleston, SC to work with a county park. Jerry and Ann will be leaving soon to visit Lucie and Wink in Virginia. Margaret Lyle is also in Virginia, where she just attended a fun family wedding. It sure is a busy month!
We miss the summer and having all of our camp buddies around, but we know we will see you next year. Keep in touch!
Sign up early for summer 2006 and you will get the chance to go on some amazing trips. If you sign up for 2 weeks or more you will get to go waterskiing on Lake Keowee. Campers who sign up early for the 4 week session will get to go waterskiing twice! Seniors will have their choice of the second waterskiing trip or a whitewater rafting trip on the Ocoee. What a blast! Just mail in your deposit and early application by October 1 and we will save you a spot. If your plans change do not worry as the deposit is refundable until February 1.
All of us at Rockbrook send our thoughts and love to our friends, campers and counselors living in areas affected by the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. We will keep everyone informed as we hear reports from you all.
If you and your family would like to assist in this difficult time please visit www.networkforgood.com for more information.
I had a great trip to my hometown Macon, Georgia this past weekend. In addition to visiting with family and friends I painted pottery at a party hosted by current camper Kayleigh Sky Donner. Kayleigh Sky and several of her buddies had just come from their basketball game so they were decked out in uniform. The name of their team is the Angels. Go Angels Go! I really enjoyed meeting lots of Kayleigh Sky’s friends from school- there were over 15 girls in attendance.
My next trip is to Florida so I will have lots more to report. Keep reading the Blog…
