About Leslie

Tripp Lake Camp takes great pride in being among the most highly regarded residential summer camps for girls in the United States. The quality of the Tripp Lake experience starts at the top with our director, Leslie Konigsberg Levy, who started her career at Tripp Lake as a camper herself. Her commitment to delivering a great residential camp experience is evident at every level.

In addition to our committed camp director, we have experienced administrators, age group advisors, and specialty counselors for all activities. We have a full medical staff with a physician and nurses on the premises at all times.


Leslie Konigsberg Levy

From the moment I arrived at Tripp Lake Camp as a camper, I fell in love with its beauty, its people, and its spirit. That love only grew as a counselor and, since 1999, as director of Tripp Lake.

My experience as a camper and counselor led me to a lifetime working with people. After graduating from Lehigh University, I earned a master’s degree in social work from Washington University in St. Louis and then served for many years as a clinical social worker at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. My experience as a camper and counselor gave me a deep appreciation for Tripp Lake’s traditions and, coupled with my time as a social worker, a unique perspective on the benefits for a young girl of summers spent at Tripp Lake.

My husband, Mitchell, and I live in Rye Brook, New York, with our sons, David and Michael.

Assistant Director

Stacy Tell

Stacy’s roots in camping run deep.  A former Tripp Lake camper herself, Stacy’s mom, aunts, and cousins also attended TLC as did her sister, Lacy.  (Her two brothers went to Camp Takajo where they were standout campers.)

Stacy brings an infectious enthusiasm to everything she does!  She spends her time out on the fields and around the bunks, having fun with the girls, and adding another layer of supervision and sensitivity.

After earning a master’s degree in education from Harvard, Stacy has been teaching in Boston for the past several years.  For seven summers, she was a member of the administration team at Camp Takajo where she oversaw their extensive hobby programs.  Once my brother, Jeff, starts speaking to me again, I’ll be sure to thank him for letting Stacy come “home” – and I’ll promise to let her attend all our brother-sister events!

Director of Operations

Known for her infectious good humor, Keely has worked in a number of different capacities at camp so she knows TLC from “all the angles.” Keely has been a bunk counselor, a land sports counselor, and has been instrumental in organizing our Alumnae Reunions.

With her ready smile, Keely’s flexibility, high energy, and strong organizational skills make her the ideal Director of Operations. During the winter, Keely oversees the all-important job of hiring our staff. During the summer, she coordinates all the logistics that make camp run so smoothly.
