A key component of Rockbrook’s philosophy, the appreciation, preservation, and enjoyment of nature are activities that we are lucky enough to immerse ourselves in while at camp. Whether hiking to Castle Rock, swimming in the lake, venturing out to Rockbrook Falls, or simply standing on the hill, it is delightfully easy to marvel at and exist within the beauty of the natural world. Camp offers a wealth of wonderful interactions with the immediate environment around us. However, it’s important to remember that enjoying Earth’s natural wonders is not an activity that is confined solely to the camp world. You may be busy with school or living in a big city, but getting back in touch with that natural goodness is never too hard a task. Mary Oliver’s poem “Going to Walden” reminds us that nature is not one specific place– rather, it is right where you are. You just have to find it.
