Kyle O'Grady

Kyle was the ideal embodiment of everything camp stands for and is about. Constantly with a smile on his face and ready to embrace whatever was coming his way, he met every day with an enthusiasm and an energy that was infectious to everyone around him. Whether it was going for a swim, spending time with his friends or even cleaning his table after the meal, he met each task with the same amount of vigor and joy. His love for camp exuded through everything that he did. The sheer force of his personal will just to come to camp the past two summers is a testament to the magic of camp and the magic of Kyle.
 
Purple was Kyle’s color and to remember him, honor him and keep him with us this summer the Camp Lawrence staff will be adorned in purple for every change day. For every child that comes to us this summer, we will carry Kyle with us, carry his story, carry his memory and keep his spirit alive so that it may pass on to everyone who is with us this summer and beyond.
