Today’s Summer Spotlights features rising Junior Alec “Storage Wars” Fisher who is a Media Arts and Practice major. This Summer Alec is working at Make-a-Wish Greater Los Angeles as a Marketing intern. Alec’s favorite part of Troy Camp is the bond he developed with so many counselors at camp which helped him bond closer with his kids.
Troy Camp would like to give a huge thank you to the Good Neighbors Campaign for their continued support of our programming! We appreciate their generosity and look forward to another year of laughs and TC Love thanks to their help!!
Today’s Summer Spotlight features rising Junior Linsdey “Galloon” Opie, she is a Public Policy major and minors in Occupational Science. This Summer Galloon is completing a teaching fellowship through Breakthrough Collaborative, and nation-wide nonprofit that has a summer program from 6-12th graders for 6 weeks. The summer program combines elements of academic support and summer camp, where students take classes but also participate in things like a camping trip, water day, and daily community meeting where people hand out spirit sticks to students who exemplify breakthroughs “spirit checks” of effective communication, community membership, persistence, and creative problem solving! Outside Troy Camp Galloon is involved in LACI (Los Angeles Community Impact), Alpha Delta Pi and USC Club Beach Volleyball. In her free time Galloon likes to box and spend time outdoors with her friends. Galloon’s favorite part about Troy Camp is the little moments our campers remember most, which includes everything from archery in the snow at camp this year to talking in line for rides at Disneyland!
“Wooden oars dip into chilly blue waters. Children run and shriek, darting around the towering pines of the San Bernardino Mountains. Vivid drawings come to life on sheets of sketching paper under tips of crayons and markers. Puffs of dust rise as horses meander along forest paths. This is Troy Camp.” — #TrojanFamilyMagazine
Our first Counselor Summer Spotlight features rising Junior Bryan “Vroom Car” Morales. Vroom Car double majors in Health and Human Sciences and NGOs and Social Change as well as a minor in Occupational Science. This summer Vroom Car travelled to Guatemala to complete a problems without passports in Health, Disease, Language and Culture in Guatemala. Vroom Car was able to develop his Spanish skills and learn more about the health systems of Guatemala which is where he discovered his passion for NGOs, and decided to add it as a double major. Vroom Car’s favorite part of Troy Camp is the kids and his B2 2018 cabin! On campus Vroom Car is also involved in CollegeSpring and USC Chan Research. In his free time you can find Vroom Car at SoulCycle or hiking in LA.
