Outdoor Education Director
Kyle grew up in Johnston, Iowa. As a kid he attended Y Camp as a camper, and remembers when The Good Time Gang visited his elementary school. After working as a summer camp leader for multiple summers he went on to full time career in YMCA. Kyle ran camps in Nebraska and Wisconsin before returning to Y Camp as the Outdoor Education Program Director. In many ways it is a dream come true for him to be back at the Des Moines Y Camp connecting with kids. His passion for educating others makes him an enthusiastic and dedicated leader, director and friend. When not at work you will find him enjoying the outdoors with his wife Sarah, daughter Nora and son Wallace. Kyle’s favorite program at camp is taking people on Night Hikes to teach them about how neat nature is after dark. Reach out to him if you have questions about School Programs or Leadership Programs.
Fun Fact: Kyle loves new projects, one of which led him to build a fully functional forge in his garage after watching a YouTube video.
