Summer Camp Director

Mike Peckham

Mike grew up in South Carolina, discovering Rockmont on a friend’s recommendation following his senior year in High School. He quickly grew to love the work – the melding of adventure and growth, storytelling and outdoor fun. Beginning in cabin 2, Mike worked as a counselor for several years before becoming a Tribal Director for 3 more. He worked in all 3 camps (Bear, Deer, and Mountain) before joining the full-time team in 2013.

After 3 years as Rockmont’s Assistant Director, Mike left Rockmont to work as a Mechanical Engineer for 3D Systems in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

We’re thrilled that he has returned to Rockmont to direct the Summer Camp. He’s passionate about sharing his excitement for fun, learning, and the outdoors with staff & campers. Mike, his wife Jess, and dog Lucy live on camp year-round and enjoy hiking, camping, and peanut-butter flavored dog treats. Mike believes campers come away from Rockmont with a sense of independence and adventure, a deeper connection with the love of God, and a heart for all people.
