Get to know Y Camp’s New Associate Executive Director! A letter from Lincoln McLainYMCA Camp at Horsethief Reservoir
April 14, 2021
Hi Y Campers!
As a lifetime lover of the outdoors, I deeply believe that the world would be a better place if we all could go to Y Camp.
Empathy does not happen accidentally and camp is the best place to learn about each other’s differences and grow together. As a child, I went camping on the shores of Lake Tahoe where I learned that there is nothing better than waking up to the smell of the pines blowing through my tent flaps. After traveling and college, I discovered that camping could be a career and I haven’t looked back since. Sticking with YMCA Camps, I have made my way across the country developing leadership skills, meeting my wife Sarah, and learning the nuances of the summer camp industry.
Through my experiences, I have never lost humility to the uniqueness of each moment and place while also bringing knowledge and experience to drive our camp forward. I am passionate about learning reverence for the outdoors, celebrating together, singing camp songs around a campfire, and blossoming our individual character values. Ultimately, making the world a better place through camp.
I look forward to seeing all of you at YMCA Camp at Horsethief Reservoir this Summer as we rediscover the Great Idaho Outdoors together!
