As a staff member, you really get a chance to make a positive impact on campers! Rockbrook has a built-in leadership program. Campers slowly take on more responsibility and learn how to work as a team-player. During their CA year, campers throw an extravagant end-of-session banquet for the whole camp. Then, they come back the next year as a Hi-Up, live in a “secret” cabin, take care of the dining hall, start all the songs, and surprise younger campers with all sorts of goodies throughout the session.
Here is what a camper wrote about the significant role camp has played in her life:
” What can I say about Rockbrook? After 4 years, I guess I can say Rockbrook has been a wonderful place to go from a little 12 year old to a 15 year old who is close to independence. Rockbrook has shaped me into the young woman I am today – well, it helped and had a big part. I have made so many friends that I will keep forever! I am a CA now, and next year I’ll be a Hi-UP. I will no longer be a camper. BUt in my heart, I will always be a Rockbrook Girl.”
