Hi there! I am so thrilled to be going back to camp this summer. I am currently living in Harrisonburg, VA pursuing my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at James Madison University. I grew up in several different places. Being a military kid, my family moved all over, so I don’t technically have a “hometown.” But, as some wise person once said, “home is where the heart is,” and I am so happy to have found a home in Rockbrook Camp. What I love most about Rockbrook is the amazing community of wonderful humans who bring life and joy to this incredible place- the campers and staff who make camp the haven that it is.

One of my favorite things to do at camp is to simply rock in one of the rocking chairs on the Hillside Lodge porch and observe all of the wonderful happenings going on around me. You see campers playing in the creek, an intense game of tetherball, mermaids getting their laps in at the lake, and beautiful smiling faces. You feel the sun’s glorious rays on your skin, or on one of the crispier days, you feel the refreshing breeze. You hear the most amazing storytelling shared by both campers and staff who find comfort and support in one another. Oh, and laughter…lots and lots of laughter. It’s all so magical. Can’t wait to be surrounded by all the love, kindness, creativity, adventure, and fun!
