Staff Spotlight - Sam Bricker

Sam Bricker and is looking forward to returning to camp for his 11th summer. Originally hailing from Deerfield, Illinois, he has spent the last two years studying at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. When not pursuing his economics degree Sam is spending time serving on the executive board of my fraternity and teaching an alcohol risk management class to new students. Next fall, he'll also be teaching an intro class for freshmen in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. At camp this year Sam will be working as a village director and tennis and disc golf instructor.
