Happy Sunday from Rockbrook! This is Chrissy here, the Waterfront Supervisor, bringing you the latest Rockbrook update! With third session winding down, the girls welcomed a relaxing Sunday at Rockbrook, starting with an extra hour of sleep. After our tasty Krispy Kreme breakfast treat, the girls headed to the hill for the Flag Raising. The red, white, and blue gleamed as the girls, dressed in their whities and red ties, raised the flag against a stunning backdrop of the Smoky Mountains.
Next the campers walked the Path of Silence to Chapel, where the theme to ponder was gratitude. After a fitting story and a few traditional Rockbrook songs, the girls were invited to share objects or stories relating to the theme. There was variety in the things the girls are most grateful for, ranging from dogs to family, but many campers voiced appreciation of their parents and of having Rockbrook as a haven in the wilderness.
This afternoon culminated in the Miss RBC event, a mock “beauty” pageant where each cabin works together to showcase their combined talents. The girls performed skits, songs, and dances that required much cooperation and teamwork within each cabin. We were blown away by the performances that showcased their collective talents and cabin abilities.
The final portion of the event was the question/answer routine for the Miss RBC representative from each cabin. The questions included “Do you know the Muffin Man and what is his favorite muffin flavor?” and “What is a honosorarius?” The CITs acted as the guest judges, taking notes about the performances, costumes, and answers of the cabins and their representatives. At the end of the show, certain cabins were awarded ribbons. Each line had a Miss Congeniality cabin award, in addition to 1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place ribbons. Miss RBC is a great demonstration of teamwork and Rockbrook spirit. What a show!
