You might be surprised to know that girls from Florida go to summer camp in North Carolina all the time. FL is not too far from NC, and when you consider the great mountain climate up here in Brevard, our much cooler summer weather is a real draw. Long before everyone had air conditioning, escaping the FL summer heat meant heading for the mountains, and for kids that meant summer camps.
Of course, the other reason to head north for camp is all the great outdoor scenery and mountain features— the waterfalls, the rock cliffs, the dense forests, the chilly streams! It’s all completely different from Florida. Being here makes you want to grab a backpack and head out on the trail. It creates an itch to hop in a raft for some whitewater action, or simply climb to the top of the nearest peak just to see the long range view. Considering all this, mountain summer camps like Rockbrook are a welcome balance to FL.
