Rockbrook is a North Carolina Camp well known in the national summer camp movement. Since 1921, Rockbrook camp has enjoyed outstanding leadership. Our current Directors, Sarah and Jeff Carter, each have more than 30 years experience at Rockbrook, and have together held most of the administrative positions at camp throughout their tenure. They are both educators and have taught children in pre-school, elementary, middle, high school, college and graduate school.
Prior to the Carters, Rockbrook’s directors were also known for their leadership. Our senior staff members and directors have had experience in education, child development, and experiential programs. The majority of our seasonal staff have been associated with Rockbrook in the past, as either former campers or counselors. This experience, coupled with further orientation and training, help us provide an excellent camp staff.
