Miniwanca Boys Camp Director
Michael began his time with AYF in 1997 as a participant in the ILC taking place at Merrowvista. As he aged from camper to adult he continued to give back and was inspired by the AYF in innumerable ways. Michael is a current NLC central staff leader as well as former mentor and Boys Camp staffer.
Michael earned a BA in Experiential Education Administration and MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Prescott College. He helped create and implement an outpatient therapeutic program at KidsTLC in Olathe, Kansas and is inspired to work in youth development in many capacities.
After 36 years living near Kansas City, Michael now calls Stony Lake, Michigan home with his wife Griffin and their three daughters. He is excited to be a part of the AYF again professionally and is energized for the future of the organization.
