Kyle Landry: Molding Lives at Camp and the Corps of Cadets

I’m Kyle Landry and I have been going to Cho-Yeh since 2008. I was a camper for 6 summers and also went on CLT. I came back to be on summer staff and 2018 will be my second year as a counselor.

I have so many great memories at Cho-Yeh but the thing that keeps me coming back are the personal relationships that I have formed over the years. It is rare that you find a group of people so rooted in Christ. The conversations that we have late at night when we are struggling to get through a tough situation have helped to change my life. The people that work at Cho-Yeh are unique and I have made lifelong friends as a result of my time at camp.

Cho-Yeh has helped to develop my servant leadership skills and patience more than I ever thought possible. It has prepared me well for the increasing responsibility that is given to me by the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M. As a sophomore in the Corps of Cadets I am given direct leadership of the freshmen and it is my responsibility to help them grow and prosper. My time at Cho-Yeh equipped me to be able to motivate my subordinates so they could achieve more than they thought possible. Working at camp has also helped me to keep calm in stressful situations.

If you are on the fence about working at camp, I would urge you to seize the opportunity to work at camp. There are not many opportunities quite like working at Cho-Yeh. It is a place that makes you work for every step you take but every step is worth it in both a spiritual and literal sense. I grew so much as a person during my time at camp and it was honestly the best summer of my life.
