Each year Camp Rocky counselors and administrators vote to award one student the Clayton Award. The award is named after Hayley Clayton, who demonstrated outstanding commitment and leadership before and during Camp Rocky. Recipients of this award make significant, instrumental contributions (before and during camp) to make Camp Rocky a success.
The 2016 Clayton Award for Outstanding Camp Leadership is Chris Breed. 2016 Camp Director and 2015 Clayton Award Recipient Jillian Ross said–"Chris is hard-working and devoted. I appreciated his input during class as it was always insightful and helpful. His extensive knowledge of and experience in camps was clear. I also appreciated his flexibility. He stepped up and filled in wherever there was a need (like when we needed someone to pick up about 60 pizzas for lunch!). He was the first one to arrive at Horn Field Campus on the day of Camp Rocky, and the very last one to leave. This was especially impressive because Chris was not a director and this level of responsibility is not necessarily required or expected. He truly went above and beyond, and I could think of non one as deserving of the 2016 Clayton award. Congratulations, Chris and thanks for all your hard work."
The 2015 Clayton Award for Outstanding Camp Leadership is Jillian Ross. Liz Flesher, the 2015 Camp Rocky Director said this: "Jillian is by far the best assistant director anyone can ask for. Not only is she personable and friendly, she is also one of the hardest workers I know. Camp Rocky would not have been the success it was without her. She took on many tasks and did a great job on delegating them to her fellow committee members. Throughout the semester many things frequently changed but she always rose to the challenge in front of her. I could not be happier or more proud of her for her accomplishments in Camp Rocky. "
The 2014 Clayton Award for Outstanding Camp Leadership is Miriah Anderson. A fellow Camp Rocky counselor, Dorian White said this: "Miriah went above and beyond the call of duty. When our chair couldn't make the times that we wanted to meet Miriah stepped forward and took the role of being a leader for our group. I had no idea what to expect when we formed committees. Even the first few times we met as a class Miriah was so shy, but as time went on throughout the whole semester, she broke out of her shell and was a very bubbly person. She is a great leader and not only did she cheer everyone on at bowling, but she made sure that everyone that was assigned a task throughout the semester stayed on top of it."
