Rachel Maxwell

Hey there, hi there! I’m Rachel, and I grew up in a small town in Southern Virginia. I am a lover of the outdoors and a casual hiker at home, so Rockbrook immediately became my second home as soon as I arrived. I have treasured spending so many summers at camp and I cannot wait to come back this year! I have met some of my best friends in the Heart of the Wooded Mountain, and I love watching campers form such special friendships & find a sense of belonging at camp. Some of my favorite spots at Rockbrook are the lake, the porch of the Junior lodge, and the Hill (Especially at sunset- there’s no better place). Rockbrook offers incredible activities; some of my favorites to teach are archery, paddling, and swimming. I love helping campers improve and become more confident in their abilities! Summer at Rockbrook is such a gift, and I am so excited to share that experience with all of the new and familiar faces this year. See you all so soon!
