Ruth Payne

Hey y’all! I’m Ruth and I’m from Atlanta, but I now consider Brevard my second home. I am so excited to work at Rockbrook again this year, and I can’t wait to spend my 9th summer at camp. As a former camper, I find it so fulfilling to be able to help create the spirit of camp that made me fall in love with Rockbrook, even if that’s just spending a chill twilight sitting on the hill.
This year I am working on the climbing staff (it rocks!), but I’m always down to jump into my favorite refreshing lake or attempt a crazy friendship bracelet pattern. I am going to the University of Georgia in the fall, but I know the summer after senior year could never be complete without friendship bracelets, s’mores, and amazing friends. See you in the heart of the wooded mountain!
