Tyler “Tiwi” Freeman

Director of Boys Camp

Tiwi first made a connection with AYF through Miniwanca’s sister camp, Merrowvista, in 2010. Holding a variety of positions there, he completed his internship in 2013 as a member of I-45. In 2014 he moved to Seattle to try to incorporate his passion for working with youth with his degree in technology. For 2 years he managed an after school enrichment company there that served up to 20 schools with STEM based curriculum.

Tiwi came to the beautiful dunes of Miniwanca in the spring of 2018 and was a facilitator of our Community and School Programs, as well as a Program Coordinator in Boys Camp in the summer of 2018. He is excited to take on the role of Director and to continue to inspire youth to step out of their comfort zone and try new things. He also loves exploring what it really means to be My own self, At my very best, All the time.
