Twin Lakes Staff & Administrators

At camp, safety is our top priority.

Every staff member is certified in first aid and CPR and has been carefully screened during a character-based hiring process with the highest standards of child safety practices, including multiple professional and personal background checks on each applicant to ensure that we have the best staff working with your child. Our counselors are chosen for their maturity skills, patience, enthusiasm and desire to be good role models for children.

Our Staff

Brian Spence

V.P. Youth Development


Brian is celebrating over 23 years of being able to serve families and communities from coast to coast. His love of camp as a child motivated him to take a camp and afterschool position during his college years. That modest college job jumpstarted his passion and drive to help families discover their own love for camping and all the great things associated with camping. Brian’s vision for our camp programs is very simple, “We want to establish a connection with families and provide an environment for kids that is safe. We want kids to be challenged and to gain new skills. But first and foremost we want kids to have FUN and create lasting memories.”

Rachel Wacker

Program Director


Rachel’s connection to the YMCA started early as she and her dad participated in Indian Princesses, now Adventure Princesses. Princess camp-outs sparked Rachel’s love of the outdoors.  Entering university, her connection was renewed through volunteer work with the University YMCA in Toledo.  From fundraisers to afterschool, Rachel caught the Y bug.  On a whim, she applied for a camp counselor position wanting to take her Y work outside.  During that first summer in Arizona, Rachel knew that camp was the place for her.  Rachel knows the transformative power of camp and strives to bring that power to the community of Camp Twin Lakes.
