Hi!! My name is Abby and i’m from Delray Beach, Florida. This will be my 6th year at RBC and I am beyond excited! This also will be my first year on staff, and I can’t wait to meet my lovely campers! I’ve grown up on the beach, so getting to visit the beautiful green woods and mountains every summer has been my favorite part of every year. My favorite place at camp is the porch of the junior lodge because of the crazy beautiful views. Rockbrook has truly made me into who I am today, and I am beyond grateful for that. I hope that I can bring a happy and comforting energy to my campers this year and I can’t wait to spend time with them and the rest of the campers and staff!

Hi everyone! I’m from Houston, Texas, although now I’m living in Colorado Springs for college. I first went to camp as a mini-session junior, so I love seeing campers going to the same activities and playing in the same creeks that I did way back then. I wasn’t able to return to camp the past two year, so I’m extra excited to be back! I especially miss the camp songs since I still get them stuck in my head all the time, but have no one to sing them with (the oat song gets stuck in my head particularly often for some reason 😂 ). See y’all at camp!

Hello! I’m Bella and I LOVE CAMP! I’ve grown up going to the beach every summer and moved right next to it ten years ago, but Rockbrook showed me the beauty of the mountains and easily converted me! I love reading on the hill, chilling by the lake, and even the trek up from lower pottery. I’m a try new things and worry about perfection later kind of person and my favorite thing about RBC is it’s the same way! I want to continue to bring that energy to camp each day, and get my hands dirty, try new things, and have fun outside this summer!!

Hey there, hi there!! I’m so so so excited to be back at Rockbrook this summer! After four years of teaching middle school, I’m so excited to be back at camp working with our fantastic staff and campers! From the first moment I got to Rockbrook, I immediately felt at home. Our long days are spent filled to the brim with playing outside, building lifelong friendships, eating good food, and growing every day. Being able to be a counselor at Rockbrook was one of the most meaningful and delightful experiences of my life, and I’m so honored to have the opportunity to support staff and campers this summer!

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 4 years old, but if you are around for second session, you’ll get to celebrate my 5th 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 🐾

As one of the Rockbrook Camp Office Directors, I handle all the exciting behind the scene logistics that make camp happen! As our Social Media Director (check out our Insta, Facebook, Pinterest, and more) I enjoy getting to share snapshots of camp life year round. One of my favorite things to do is help design the camp gear available in our camp store!

I have always been able to call North Carolina home, and I’m grateful to be able to call the Heart of the Wooded Mountain my home for the last 7 years. During my first summer at camp, I quickly understood why campers come back to attend summer after summer. Rockbrook truly is a natural oasis. This summer I am most excited to have campers immerse themselves in nature and explore all the gorgeous wonder Rockbrook has to offer!

Although I was never a camper at Rockbrook, I grew up in Kentucky and attended a few different Girl Scout camps. I always enjoyed going to camp for the singing, making new friends, and sleeping in platform tents. In college, I knew I wanted to be a camp counselor and ended up finding Rockbrook. The community at Rockbrook is truly one-of-a-kind and has brought me back summer after summer. Now, I am lucky enough to live and work at camp year-round as program director and it still feels like a dream!

I hope this summer to make new friends, learn something new, eat lots of muffins, and to be appreciative of every moment spent at camp. It has been a joy planning the fun we will have at camp this summer and I am counting down the days until all of you are here with me!!

I was 16 my first summer at Rockbrook, and I thought working at a summer camp would be something to try once. Little did I know that Rockbrook would be a place I would never want to leave! It is the sweetest little place I can think of – so much happiness and friendship is developed here in this beautiful valley. Every year, I see Rockbrook work its magic by taking a group of open-hearted girls, filling their days with creative and fun activities, and surrounding them in a timelessly beautiful spot in nature. Even just a couple of weeks of camp can leave a mark on a girl’s heart forever. And for me, one of the best moments is watching alumnae return to camp and seeing the campers they once were come bubbling out in their joy just to return to sit on the hill again at RBC.
