Alex Kretzinger

Executive Director

Alex Kretzinger

Alex first worked at Y Camp in 2011 while finishing college. He didn’t know at the time, but he would get hooked on camp pretty quickly. Starting full-time in 2013, Alex led the Summer Camp and Family Camp programs for 5 summers. In August of 2019 he took the reins as Executive Director after he successfully led the Y Camp family through a highly anticipated 100 Year Anniversary Celebration and another outstanding summer season. He is originally from Boone and grew up not far from camp, but spent his summers working with his grandfather on the farm. While working as a Summer Leader, Alex met the woman who would become his wife: Beth. They’ve been married since 2016 and have two children, Ben and Leah. When he’s not working, Alex loves to read, write music, fish, go birding and spend time with friends and family. As a graduate of the University of Iowa he is an avid Hawkeye fan. Please reach out to him with any questions about camp!

Fun Fact: Sang in a men’s acapella group in college called Intersection, and it was through a member of the group that he joined the Y Camp team in 2011.
