She has been coming to Camp for 6 years and is looking forward to another great year on Staff! Her favorite class at Camp has always been drama! She has always loved acting, but was too scared to be in the school plays. At Camp, she feels like she can be herself, and loves to perform in front of all of her friends! She loves all of the friends she has made at Camp, and looks forward to showing all of the new campers how amazing RCMA is!

Mikayla has been coming to Camp for 5 years, and is very excited for her second year on Staff! As a camper, her favorite class was archery because she had never used a bow and arrow before, but once she started she realized how fun it was and has stuck with it ever since! She loves the friendships and bonds formed at Camp and loves seeing girls step out of their comfort zone and become more confident. This summer, she is most looking forward to making new memories with the Staff and campers!

She has been coming to Camp for 6 years and is super excited for her first year on Staff! One of her favorite Camp classes is canoeing/kayaking because she loves running tips, and what she loves most about Camp is how by the end of the week everyone is just like a family and you get so close with your cabin and every girl that is there that week! She is looking forward to meeting all of the campers and making sure they all have an amazing summer either coming back or coming to Camp for the first time!

Mom Sharon

Mom Sharon's love of camp started in 1989 at her first year here! She's served as JC, Counselor, Assistant Director, and since 2005 been our Director. She loves creating the magic that she enjoyed as a camper and staff member at camp. One of her favorite things about camp is watching shy, first-time campers mature to confident and outgoing staff members.
