Staff Spotlight - Ike Nierman

My Name is Isaac Nierman but everyone calls me Ike. I hail from Wilmette, Illinois and am apart of the track team at New Trier. My events are High jump, Pole vault, and sometimes Discus. In my free time I like to hang out with friends and play basketball.

This will be my second year on staff at camp and my 9th in total. I'm super excited to continue instructing Biking and land sports at camp, and I'm even more excited to see all the people I get to spend my time with over the summer, while meeting some new ones!
