At the Mic with Trips Director Ryan Wagner
Ryan Wagner served as Trips Director through both Boys and Girls Camp as well as the upcoming Family Camp. He brought great mentoring skills for the staff as well as conducting entertaining bonehead ceremony's for the campers.
Let's hear from Ryan:
I am currently studying Civil Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with one year to go. When I'm not at camp or rattling off Calculus and statics problems, you can find me in the outdoors hunting, fishing, hiking, or camping. If by chance I am not doing any of those great activities, I am most likely doing just about anything else.
This is my fourth summer at camp. The previous three years have granted me the opportunity to lead Far North sea kayaking trips, a Western Backpacking trip in the Wind River Range, and an Expeditionary Backpacking trip in the Brooks Range of Alaska.
My favorite Manito-wish memory would have to be the Alaskan Nash Lodge Skit that our group preformed upon returning from the Arctic. We shook the dinning hall from kitchen to restrooms with our chant which apparently was impressive enough to warrant a standing ovation. Great way to come back from a trip of a lifetime!
