Jenelle Francis

Hi everyone! My name is Jenelle, I am 22 years old and I just graduated from Clemson University with my Bachelors in Psychology! I am super excited to be spending my summer in the beautiful mountains of Brevard! Last summer was my first time ever here at Rockbrook Camp and I cannot wait to come back and reunite with old friends as well as meet new ones. My favorite thing about Rockbrook is meeting so many amazing campers with unique and wonderful personalities. I love getting to know who they are, their interests, and overall watching them grow and have fun. I also love going on the adventure trips with my campers and hope to go on even more. I can’t wait to see everyone!

Bianca Vencato

Hey hey hey! My name is Bianca and I am SUPER excited for camp this year! I just recently graduated from Florida State University and I’m heading to Washington, DC to get my Masters at George Washington University, but I have to make a quick stop at camp to be your counselor for the summer, of course! I was born in South Florida, but raised in a little small town in Minas Gerais, Brazil! I came back to the USA in the middle of 5th grade, so don’t judge me if I pronounce things a little wrong (but it’s ok to laugh at me, I’ll laugh too).
I am super energetic all the time, I love telling stories, and 3 things I can talk about for hours are cheese, llamas (or alpacas), and Brazil! I have always been super involved with a lot of clubs in school and I’m super excited to bring this energy into camp and get into all the activities I can! I’ve also only been to small summer camps when I was little, but never a sleep-away camp. Going to Rockbrook is a dream come true for me and it is already fulfilling all of my “Parent Trap” dreams of being away at camp. Maybe I won’t find a long lost twin, but I hope to find some incredible girly pops!

Adrianna Manias

Hi! I’m Adrianna, I’m 24 years old and I come from Poland. Currently, I live and study in the UK, North Wales to be more specific. This is going to be my first camp experience and I can’t wait to meet all of the girls that will be campers this summer. I will be one of the counselors and I will also be teaching basketball. I used to be a basketball player for 8 years in Poland. After I’ve moved out I had a chance to coach a team and train in one myself. Basketball is a big part of my life and I’d love to share it with our campers.

Sonja Jordan

Hi camp friends! I am beyond excited to return to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina! You can catch me going all out for camp songs, reading on the porch of the senior lodge, or watching the sunset on the hill. I am so glad to return to where the air is cleaner, the laughs are louder, and the sun shines brighter. I love the chilly mornings, the bright stars, the fresh air of camp, and most of all, the history and lessons that Rockbrook teaches. See you guys soon!

Hi, I’m Lara, 24 years old, and I come from Saarland, a rural area of Germany next to France. Currently, I live close to Cologne for studying adult education. I worked in the past with teenagers and young adults in assisted living, vocational rehabilitation and during camp. In my freetime I like to swim and to spend time with my friends and family. When I saw the Rockbrook Camp’s Website and the beautiful fotos for the first time I fell in love with it! I am so excited to meet the Rockbrook Campers with their fantastic ideas! I look forward to spending a nice time together while playing games, exploring new things, experiencing adventures indoors and outdoors! See you soon!

Hi everyone! My name is Isadora and I’m from the sunny city of Miami, FL. I’m counting down the days until I get to return to Rockbrook, my favorite place on earth, for my tenth (!!!) summer. My favorite part of camp is getting to know all of the campers, whose energy and excitement pack the summer full of fun adventures! At Rockbrook, you can find me hiking to Castle Rock, running Charlotte’s Loop, or spending time with friends, new and old, on the hill. I can’t wait to meet you all and have so much fun this summer!

Caroline Tucker

Hey there, hi there!! I’m Caroline and I can’t wait to be back for my 8th summer. I just finished my freshman year at the University of Georgia, and cannot imagine spending my summer anywhere else. You can usually find me on the hill making a bracelet or enjoying the sun on a rock by the lake. I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Rockbrook has been a huge part of my life, but even more so since my great-great-grandmother founded it in 1921. I’m excited to see all your beautiful faces on the hill on opening day!
