2018 Staff Spotlight - Micah Jona

My name is Micah Jona and this is my 11th summer at camp. I’m from Wilmette, IL and I just finished my freshman year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There I’m majoring in computer science and economics with a certificate in math. I’m also part of the euchre club, and enjoy spending my free time hanging out with friends and playing basketball and ultimate frisbee.

Before I head up to camp, I’m relaxing at home and trying to watch as many Cubs games as possible. At camp, you can find me teaching disc golf, tennis, and hopefully driving some water ski boats!
