Polly Cameron joins the Rockmont staff bringing 40 plus years of experience. Polly spent over 23 years of her professional career in the camping industry administratively providing a safe and challenging atmosphere of year round learning for young people ages 5-16. She was responsible for the hiring, oversight, record management, accounts receivable and payable and training of staff and employees (ages 18-45) that were accountable for campers care. During the school year the camp ran an environmental program for children through the school systems throughout the southeast.
Polly was the “voice” of the organization, as she was the first person of contact, enrolling campers and answering parents’ questions. Be it going to an ACA conference, playing guitar at campfire, or marketing the experience to campers and counselors, Polly was ready to apply her life experience(s) and administrative aptitude for the support of the organization. Polly’s “mid-life” career of 16 years was spent working for Montreat Conference Center as the Annual Fund Director, Major Gifts Director, and Executive Assistant to the President. She retired in 2019, moved to coastal Mississippi, returned to WNC and later was hired as Rockmont’s Business Manager effective January 3, 2022.
To quote Polly, “I am fortunate to bring my career full circle to the most treasured and rewarding memories of my life”.
Camp is truly the greatest gift you can give.
