As a summer youth camp, Rockbrook’s mission is to be
“a haven for girls, a place of their own, where they can explore the beauty of nature, try new things, enjoy carefree summer living, and make some of their very best friends.”
And of course, camp is all about the fun, the super silliness of it all, too.
But it’s also more than all that, because camp is also a place where you learn a ton. Camp is definitely educational, and in the very best sense of the word. It teaches you how to be more independent, more creative, braver, and more socially adept. Camp helps you learn new ways to get along with others, to trust the people around you, and to feel good about what you do. It’s really true; youth camps help young people learn about themselves.
When you add the sort of caring spirited people that work at Rockbrook, you begin to understand how summer camps can be one of the most valuable educational experiences around.
There are so many things they don’t teach you in school. It’s at camp where we start to learn them!
Thank you for all the helpful information I found Friday on your site. I was doing a search for the keyword phrase “beauty of nature” and your site answered a lot of questions. I will bookmark and visit again….
