Welcome to Mary Boyle, our new Camp Pondicherry Director!

Mary Boyle

Meet Mary Boyle, Director at Camp Pondicherry, and the newest member of the GSME family!

As a child, Mary was an active Girl Scout in her home state of Massachusetts, and through her experiences, her love for the outdoors grew.

Mary believes camp is a life-changing experience for girls and wants to continue to empower them to gain confidence and courage through new experiences. She is excited to share her knowledge and experience with the girls at Pondicherry this summer and help create lasting memories. Mary has spent these past eight summers working at a residential summer camp in the Lakes Region. Most recently, she was a part of the administrative team as the Girls Campus Head, but Mary has done everything at camp, from being a cabin counselor to Waterfront Director. She even worked during the off-season for weddings and prepping for camp. She cannot imagine spending her summer anywhere other than the Lakes Region.

In addition to her camp experience, Mary worked in outdoor education programs where she taught field based, hands-on curriculum in many areas of science and leadership, like Outdoor Living Skills, Orienteering, and Forest Ecology, to name a few. She has worked on both high and low ropes challenge courses and created tailored team building classes for kids and adults. She is a nationally certified EMT- B, as well as a Wilderness EMT, and holds certifications in Water Safety and Lifeguarding.

Mary is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a BS in Kinesiology.

When not at camp, Mary enjoys hiking and backpacking through the mountains in the northeast. She also loves dogs, swimming, and drinking tea.

We are so thrilled to welcome Mary!
