SAC Sr. Counselors
Mr. Luke leads the SAC Sr. group along with experienced and energetic support staff. SAC Sr. counselors are role models for your child, encouraging them as they try new things and build new skills. As always we will have low teacher to student ratios and will bring in extra staff for the activities and field trips that require it.
Mr. Luke – Sac Sr Director
I graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management with a Sociology Minor.
After college I went to work for a camp in Baraboo, where I got to guide students through all sorts of outdoor adventures. Recently, I had the opportunity to build an outdoor Education Program with my wife while living in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
I grew up in Muskegon, MI with my 2 sisters and brother who all currently live in Chattanooga, TN. I married my wife in January of 2016. I enjoy spending time in God’s creation, hunting, fly fishing, or just exploring.
I graduated from Malone University in Canton, Ohio with a B.A. in Youth Ministry and a minor in Business Administration after dabbling in Chemistry, Social Work, Psychology, Philosophy, and Art.
I have been working with youth and children since 2006 in churches in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Northern Ireland. Most of my work and experience is from working with children from Kindergarten to 9th grade in a camp ministry setting for 10 years.
I have been blessed more in life than I deserve. I have lived overseas and visited several countries. I have an education and a great family. I love working with children, exploring nature, hiking, reading, cooking, and spending time with friends.
I went to Madison College with a Teaching Scholarship. I finished the Child Care Development Specialist Degree in February 2005.
I started babysitting when I was 12 years old. At the age of 16, I became a Teacher’s aid at Child Life Ministries in McFarland. While attending McFarland High School, I worked at N.A.E.Y.C. Accredited Centers.
In my free time, I enjoy fishing, hunting, camping, snowboarding, and ATVing at my family’s cabin.
I graduated from Waunakee High School in 2016 and did one year of general education at Madison Technical College. I am now at UW-La Crosse and just completed my second year there. I am majoring in Elementary Education at La Crosse with a TESOL (teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Minor.
I started babysitting when I was 12 years old and have nannied every summer since then. I also spent a summer as a PhyEd summer school aid at Waunakee School District. I have spent many years volunteering in my church’s Children’s Church program and continue to serve as a youth group leader at my church in La Crosse.
In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends. I love being outdoors boating, swimming, or hiking. You can also always find me curled up with a good book.
