Staff Spotlight - Ethan Levy

My name is Ethan Levy and this will be my 11th summer at camp, and my fourth as a counselor. At camp I usually teach various sports, including hockey, volleyball, soccer, and football. I also teach waterskiing. 

I am from Milwaukee Wisconsin, and currently I am a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I do not know my major, but I will probably study economics or communications. At school I play ultimate frisbee and soccer, and I am involved in the student government.

How has camp impacted you?
- Camp has really shaped me into the person I am today. I have been going to camp since I was 9, so I have learned many life lessons, like sportsmanship and friendship. As a counselor, I learn to be caring and selfless, which have really helped me create bonds both outside of camp and at camp. Camp has given me a constant home, and helped me create lifelong friendships that I will be forever grateful for.
