Camp Counselors

Alayna, or Winky, received her camp name because at the first camp training she was blinking a lot. So originally her camp name was going to be Blinky, but her coworkers decided Winky was a better fit. Winky is the coordinator for the 6 and 7 year olds and has been for the past two summers. Winky's first YMCA experience was when her family got a membership at the Northwest YMCA when it opened. This is Winky's fifth summer as a camp counselor and she loves spending summers with the kids and other staff members of Camp Hyde. Winky is working toward a bachelor's degree in elementary education through Fort Hays State University. After she graduates from FHSU, she plans to teach in the Wichita area.
