Week 6 – Melissa Roorda

Profession/Where I Am Now:  I am a Registered Nurse and live in Wasaga Beach, ON.

Camp Experience:  I started volunteering at Rocky Ridge Ranch the summer after grade eight and worked there for a total of 9 years.  I started as a kitchen girl, and worked my way to become the head cook for 3 years. 

Fondest Memories: My fondest memories come from meal times and campfires.  Sharing stories, having fun and creating friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. 

Lessons Learned: I love everything about Rocky Ridge Ranch.  From their family values, safe and beautiful setting, to their genuine desire to be a blessing to staff, campers and their community. 

Impact of Camp:  I still visit, support and pray for RRR.
