Patt Cooper
For those that know about Rose Lake Youth Camp, the name is synonymous with another name – Patt Cooper. Patt made a trip out to visit the little camp on Rose Lake in 1978 and she was hooked. Every summer since 1978, Patt was a guiding force for RLYC. She served for years as the Camp Director and was an invaluable member of the Board of Directors. Patt guided thousands of children over the years to learn to love the outdoors, cherish our natural resources and give back to our community. We thank her for being such a big part of making RLYC a great place.  Thank you, Patt. You will be missed by so many.
