Sophie Lyman

Hey there, hi there! My name is Sophie Lyman. I’m a rising high school senior from Atlanta, GA and I am so excited to return to my favorite place this summer as a CIT on the Junior line for the July 1st mini session. This will be my 7th year at Rockbrook, and my first on the staff. My grandmother and aunt on my dad’s side were both counselors at Rockbrook in their day. My favorite place at camp is the porch of the Middler lodge, because I love looking out over the mountains and hearing the creek flowing below. As a camper, I loved jewelry-making, riflery, and climbing (the view from Castle Rock is worth the trip!).

At home, I live with my parents, my brother McCoy, who goes to our brother camp Camp Carolina, and my sister Lizzie, who is also a Rockbrook girl! We have two cats, Cosmo and Otis, and a dog, Olive. (If you end up in my cabin I will have lots of pictures!) I have a passion for history and biology and aim to continue those studies in college, wherever I end up. At school, I am the captain of our JV girls ultimate frisbee team, a member of our varsity quiz bowl team, and a coach and founder of our Girls on the Run team in the elementary. I am also a remedial English tutor. I’ve been in every school musical possible and will be directing our student-run musical this August. I can’t wait to meet you all this summer- I can already taste the Dolly’s ice cream.
