Climbing Director, Program Intern

Michael Murphy

Michael (Murph) Murphy’s Rockmont experience began as a staff member in 2015. He found camp through a friend at Appalachian State University, Blake Poppin, and they signed up together. As a counselor in cabin 27, he discovered a love for Rockmont and the growth that camp offers. After a hiatus in 2016, he spent the following years as a Tribal Director of both Mountain Camp tribes and as the Camping and Climbing Crew (CCC) Director. Now, in 2020, he will be back on the hill in Mountain Camp as the Camp Director for our oldest campers. He also received his Single Pitch Instructor certification (SPI) through the American Mountain Guides Association and will be leading our Rock Climbing trips this Summer!
