Hi everybody! I’m Miriam, a junior at Rhodes in Memphis, TN. I’m so excited to spend my summer at Rockbrook before I head to Spain as an exchange student this fall! I’ve been coming back to my favorite mountain year after year, and it’s still the most beautiful place with the friendliest people I’ve found. I love being a counselor because my girls inspire me to be fearless and make me laugh ’til my stomach hurts. I can’t wait to see what this summer will bring, but I have a feeling it’ll include campfires, costumes, and lots and lots of muffins!

Hey there, hi there!
I can’t even put into words how excited I am to be returning to RBC this summer! I graduated from Centre College almost exactly a year ago, and I’ve spent the past school year doing a year of service with AmeriCorps Project YES!, serving in a 9th grade social studies classroom in West Town, Chicago. I love my students, but there’s something special about Rockbrook Girls that I’ve been missing! I can’t wait to be back in the land of greener grass, clearer skies, kinder gals, and sweeter muffins. See you on the line!!

Hi Y’all! My name is Amy and this is my first summer at Rockbrook! To say I am excited would be an understatement. I am a Senior at West Texas A&M University studying psychology.

I can not wait to meet all of the excited and adventure seeking girls this summer and create AWESOME memories!! Can’t wait to meet everybody!

Hey there, hi there! I am super excited to be returning to Rockbrook this summer. I can’t wait to be in the heart of the wooded mountain again. I am going into my 3rd year of college at Lander University and I am studying chemistry. I absolutely loved working at Rockbrook last summer. I taught the activity Folklore last year and I hope to be teaching it again. I can’t wait to see all the excited campers and to share in their awesome camp experience. The thing that I’m most looking forward to is the different flavor of muffins every day. Rockbrook truly is my home away from home.

Hi everyone! I’m Riley, I just finished my freshman year at Haverford College, and I’m super excited to be working at Rockbrook this summer! I’m from Charlotte, NC, and I can’t wait to be back in North Carolina this summer. I love being outside, playing volleyball (I play at Haverford!), and getting to know new people, so I’m thrilled about working at camp! This will be my first summer at Rockbrook, and I can’t wait to meet and get to know all of the campers!

Hey y’all, I’m Zella! I grew up in North Carolina, and having been out west for a while now, I’m beyond stoked to be returning to the Old North State (first for camp, then to start college in the fall)! I love camp because there’s always something new to experience, and the campers’ craziness, creativity, and kind hearts never fail to make my day.
At RBC, I teach Climbing (cause climbing ROCKS), but you can also find me leading (following) the Rockbrook Runners, and starting this summer, lifeguarding at the lake! I can’t wait to meet/reunite with all the incredible campers and counselors!!!

Hey, everybody! I’m Hannah, and this is my second year on the Rockbrook Staff. I am SO excited to be returning to camp this summer!!!

I absolutely LOVE spending time at the Alpine Tower, and hiking up to castle rock to watch the sunset. Camp has always been a breath of fresh air (literally), and I cannot wait to meet all of the campers!

I am looking forward to spending more time at the lake – both to lifeguard, and to work on my chaco tan. As a camper, I rarely went in the lake because I thought it was a little chilly, but now I think of the water as refreshing.

See you soon!

Hello all you Rockbrook Girls! My name is Hailey McGee and I am absolutely thrilled to be back at camp for my 13th summer in a fresh new role as Junior Linehead! I am from sunny Sarasota, FL and I just completed my junior year of college at James Madison University. At camp, I can usually be found chatting with campers and counselors on the Junior Lodge porch, making friendship bracelets, or teaching down at the Archery range. Working at camp is my favorite part of the year by far and I can’t wait to see all of the new and returning faces on opening day! See you all soon!
