Caroline Rinker

Hi everyone, my name is Caroline Rinker, and I am from West Palm Beach, Florida. I am entering my Sophomore year at Florida State University and can not wait to join the Rockbrook family this summer. Growing up in South Florida, I love to spend my free time outdoors. Typically you can find me near a pool, lake, or beach swimming and playing sports with friends and family. On a rainy day, I love to read and bake some sweet treats (I would be lying if I said I didn’t have a pretty strong sweet tooth 🙂 ). I can’t wait to make some fantastic memories with new friends this summer, playing sports and exploring all that Camp Rockbrook has in store.

Anna Claire McLean

Hi everyone! My name is Anna Claire and I am beyond excited to be returning to camp this summer :-). I live in Philadelphia, PA but I am ready to return to my home in the heart of the wooded mountain! Rockbrook has been my home away from home since I was six years old and I cannot believe I am finally part of our beloved Rockbrook Staff! I have already started counting down the days until I meet my first set of campers and can wake up to a cabin of smiling faces! My favorite thing about camp has always been stargazing on the hill and reuniting with my camp sisters! I hope everyone is as excited as I am for the amazing summer ahead!!!

Hey everyone!! My name is Laney and I’m so excited to meet you all! I’m from Charleston, South Carolina and a rising senior at Wando High School. I have been a camper at Rockbrook since I was 7 years old. Each year I come back to camp to see the friends I have made and known now for more than half of my life. The experiences at camp are different than any I could have at home or anywhere else. I am extremely excited to share my love for Rockbrook with new campers and old friends.

Felix the dog

Felix

Hi there! I may look a little different but I’m part of staff too! My name is Felix, and I’m Rockbrook’s camp dog! I’m 3 years old, but if you are around for second session, you’ll get to celebrate my 4th birthday with me! Some of my favorite things to do at camp are checking out trashcans for muffin wrappers, hanging out at the kitchen door, and “lifeguarding” at the lake! Well, I’m actually kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to swimming. Speaking of muffins, I LOVE food. And trash. I know lots of tricks and will gladly do one for a treat! But my waistline would appreciate it if you didn’t feed me any food except treats given to you by a director. I’m a little shy at first, but once I warm up to you, I will be your best friend! You can find me hanging out with Sarah, taking a nap on the porch of the office, or running by with the Rockbrook Runners! I can’t wait to see you this summer,
Felix 🐾

Patricia Hughes

Hi! My name is Patricia and I just finished my freshman year at Middlebury College in Vermont! I grew up in Oxford, Mississippi, and my favorite season is summer (no doubt because of camp). I’ve gone to camp since I was eight years old, and it’s one of my favorite places in the world. The vibes there are off the charts! I can’t wait to contribute to this loving community as a counselor this year and help make it as golden as camp is in my memories. As a camper, curosity and pottery were some of my favorite activities, and I also enjoy dressing up, making friendship bracelets, and hanging out by the creek. I can’t wait for camp to start!! 🙂

Hi everyone!
My name is Seda-Harmony, but usually I just go be Seda:) I am from Cincinnati Ohio, but the NC mountains will forever be my home. Rockbrook has shaped my life more than I even realize, and I genuinely believe that I wouldn’t be who I am today without camp. The experiences and friendships have truly shaped me into the outgoing, and adventurous person that I am today. I am so pumped to have the new experience of being on camp staff as a CIT this year, and see camp from an entire new perspective! I cant wait to meet all of you lovelies, see ya soon xxx.
