Hi!! My name is Yi, and I’m from Scotland. I’m currently studying Psychology and Business Management at the University of St Andrews and this will be my first year being a camp counselor!
I love trying new things, spending time outdoors, with my friends or doing anything related to arts/music. I’ve never experienced what camp is like so I’m really looking forwards to teaching activities, sleeping in the cabins & experiencing the routine of it all!
I can’t wait to meet everyone and the campers too! I love kids and seeing their smiley faces always brightens up my day which I’m most excited for as a counselor!

Hi! I’m Liz and I am beyond excited to be returning to camp this summer as a first-year counselor! I started attending Rockbrook the summer between 6th and 7th grade and have called it my home away from home ever since! My first year I was blown away by all the fun activities and adventures camp had to offer! However, it was the friendships I made and my love for Rockbrook that brought me back time and time again. Camp is such a unique experience to try new things, be silly, and open your heart. Rockbrook played a tremendous role in shaping me into the woman I am today, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to give that experience back to my campers!

Hi everyone!! My name is Landon and I am really excited to be returning to RBC this summer! I live in Miami, Florida and will be a senior in high school this fall. I started going to camp in 2014 and although my last few years as a camper were cut short, I am more than ready to return to camp as a CIT this summer. My favorite part of camp is the friends that I have made throughout the years and I am looking forward to meeting new friends this year! You can usually find me sitting on a lodge porch making friendship bracelets.

I can’t wait to start camp this summer!!!!

Hey everyone! My name is AC and I am so excited to be a counselor again at Rockbrook! I live in Richmond, VA and I am a rising Freshman at the University of Tennessee. I first found Rockbrook when I was in search of a camp were I could whitewater kayak (one of my favorite activities), since then I have felt like I found a second home at Rockbrook. I love all of the long-lasting friends I have made and seen others make while at camp. Some of my favorite things to do at camp are kayak around the lake, go down the slide during free swim, take nature walks with my friends, and sit on the hill while making friendship bracelets. I hope I can bring an exciting and happy energy to camp this summer! I am so excited to be back in the amazing camp atmosphere and wake up to that cold mountain air every morning!

Nora LaFleur

Hello! My name is Nora. I’m originally from Westport, Connecticut (near New York City), but I currently live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and have also lived in Orlando. I’ve been attending Rockbrook since 2018 and ever since then it’s always been the highlight of my summer. I love getting to be out in nature and meeting new friends from all over the country. Camp allows you to be your true self in a way school never can. My favorite spot at RBC is probably the creek near Curosity, and I love spending time in my Crazy Creek chair making friendship bracelets or reading a book. I’m beyond excited to be back in Brevard this summer and spend time with everyone!!

Hey all! I’m Mayson, and I’m going to be a CIT at camp this year! I’ve been going to camp since 2015, but I grew up hearing stories about Rockbrook, because my mom went for 8 years when she was younger! I’m so thankful that I get the chance to be back at camp this summer, and I can’t wait! I live in Smyrna, Georgia, which is right outside of Atlanta. I’m going to be a senior in high school this fall, so I’m not quite sure what I plan to major in yet, or where I plan to go to college.

At camp, you can usually find me on the alpine tower, at the riflery or archery ranges, or on the hillside lodge porch making friendship bracelets! One of my favorite parts of camp is the community, because everyone is so friendly and welcoming! I can’t wait to see what this summer has to offer! 🙂
