Leadership Program Director

Sean began his relationship with Camp in 2011 with the most challenging and rewarding position he has held to date, a Near South counselor in Fairview Cabin. Having spent 2 summers as a sectional and multiple springs/summers/falls as a facilitator in the Leadership Program, Camp has been a second home to him ever since. After graduating from Elmhurst College with a degree in Music Education, Sean went on to work as a Reserve Teacher in both Chicago and Minneapolis, spent time teaching music in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and held a position as a youth boatbuilding instructor at Urban Boatbuilders. Throughout these varied experiences with education, Camp Manito-wish has always been a driving force in his passion for youth development, and he couldn’t be more excited to be a full-time member of the CMY family.
