A new era for patrons is being ushered in at the Door County YMCA. The new Youth and Sports Director, Paul Briney is spending March settling into the role. A native of Macomb, IL, Briney is familiar with Door County after vacationing in the area growing up. Briney stayed in his hometown to complete his Bachelors’ and Masters’ degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Administration from Western Illinois University last December.
The transition should be smooth, as Briney mentions he has a large background in sports, programming, and youth leadership. All three of those will fit well into his new job description at the Door County YMCA. The director is excited for what’s ahead, adding that he will be in charge of youth camps. Briney is looking forward to getting the ball rolling with camp season, outlining camps that will be held at Otumba Park.
Briney officially started his role on March 1st. More information on Summer camps and youth programs can be found on the Door County YMCA website.
