Camp Staff


Piper Walker, Site Administrator

This is Piper's third year at Adventures in Writing and she is excited to be returning as a Site Admin in San Mateo! Piper currently teaches 7th grade math and 8th grade science in Santa Ana and she loves it. Middle school is a crazy time of transition in a student's life, and Piper is so grateful to get to be a part of it. She loves cheering her students on and supporting them. She also loves teaching them how to write and express themselves through their writing. When she is not teaching, Piper enjoys spending time with family, traveling, reading and writing! She has traveled around the world and has been inspired to integrate travel stories into her writing portfolio. She is looking forward to welcome new writers to camp this year and see what they create!

Keely OLoughlin Camp, Entertainment Ranger

We're excited to welcome back Keely for her third year with AIW! She has been an Adventure Guide as well as an Entertainment Ranger so she knows this camp pretty well by now. Keely lives in Southern California during the school year and spends most of her time either working as a Behavior Therapist or attending school at UC Irvine. She majors in Psychology and Social Behavior with a minor in Education. When she is not busy with work or school, Keely enjoys reading, hiking/being outdoors, baking/cooking, playing basketball, and enjoying time with friends! She is extremely delighted to be back this summer and looks forward to the crazy adventures that await!
