About Me


Aarna Gupta

Founder, PSLA

Hi! I'm 16 years old, an incoming junior at Interlake High School (class of 2025). I'm passionate about helping the community and working with kids, and there is no better way to do this than having a summer program that is open to everyone! I believe in taking time away from electronics to connect with the world around us, and both the new generation and COVID have had a large impact on this.

This is why I started a small summer camp in 2020 for elementary schoolers. During COVID, I saw the negative effects stemming from the lack of socialization. This is why I wanted to create a space where they can connect with others, be outside, and have a great time (yes that's possible). As a former Cherry Crest alumni (2018), I found it best to host the camp in the place I made my most valuable memories and the place I considered my second home! Thanks to the support and love from the Cherry Crest community, the camp has grown more than I could have imagined! I'm proud to announce the fifth year of camp, larger than it has ever been!

In my efforts to give back to the community, I donated my entire 2022 PSLA Summer Camp profits ($1,000) to Cherry Crest Elementary School. To learn more about the Cherry Crest donation, click here.

Besides helping the community, I love to play volleyball, do theatre, read, hang out with friends, and draw. I cannot wait to meet your child at camp this summer!
