One of the oldest summer camp traditions at Rockbrook is the final campfire known as the “Spirit Fire.” It’s when the entire camp gathers for a ceremonial campfire. We sing traditional camp songs, recognize campers and listen as people share their thoughts about what Rockbrook and their time at camp means to them. At the end of the presentations and songs, each camper has a candle they light from the central campfire, symbolizing a shared spirit of the camp. It’s a very beautiful event, and a great way to close each camp session. It’s also quite amazing to think that every girl who’s attended Rockbrook since 1921 has shared that same experience.
