This month’s Alumni Spotlight is Kelsey Boyle. Although Kelsey’s last summer at CRC was 2013, her love of camp endures. She remains an important part of the Chippewa community, and we are lucky to have her! Read below to learn about Kelsey’s camp experience and her life in LA!
What years were you at CRC?
Which summer was your favorite and why?
Camper summer: C-C ‘07. I was excited to finally be in the lakefront cabins and I got the chance to live with lots of friends I hadn’t been in a cabin with before. Staff summer: Rafter X ’13. It was the year the cabin was built and I just had a blast being a senior counselor. I had a lot of fun with both my campers, co-counselors, and age group.
What is your favorite camp memory?
Either being a Sachem with Casey Richter in 2010, especially during Songfest and Pony Express, or just all the days I spent dying of laughter on the Hobie with my friends.
What was your favorite activity at camp?
Fave activity to teach: trampball and buddy board. Fave to take: sailing.
Were you a Tan or a White?
How do you keep in touch with your camp friends?
Group text, Snapchat and Instagram.
Where do you live now?
What do you do?
Just graduated with my Master of Social Work degree and am now working as a mental health therapist at a homeless outreach agency in LA.
What do you miss most about camp?
I miss being so carefree, when my biggest worry was whether I was going to have a hotdog at BBQ or have…two hotdogs.
Anything else you want to share with your Chippy family?
Shoutout to my age group, all my past co-counselors, and all my campers. ALSO I’m so proud of all my Chippies who I’ve recently seen committing to fight for racial justice! Love you all.
