Staff Spotlight - Nathan Margrett

My name is Nathan Margrett and I hail from Milwaukee, WI. Graduating from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse this past December with a psychology degree in at-risk child & youth care I have been working in a group home for adults with disabilities. My typical day at camp involves canoe swamping, dutch oven cooking and a bit of climbing. Looking forward to another great summer!
