Camps Director

Ricky GonzalezRG

Summer Camps Director Lead STEAM Program

Ricky is our new Camps Director here at the North Suburban YMCA. During the school year, Ricky leads our STEAM program, coaching youth basketball and assisting with the Adventure Guides. Fun fact about Ricky is that he performed stand-up comedy professionally for over 10 years.

When asked how he helps members, Ricky responded, " I help our members in a variety of ways!

As the director of summer camps, I help facilitate an environment where campers can feel safe, have fun, make new friends, try new things and so much more.

During the year, I make sure kids get from school to the Y safely where I then lead after-school programs like STEAM and basketball practice."

When we asked what Ricky likes the most about the Y, he responded, "What I like most about working here is how amazing and friendly the Y staff are. If I ever need help with anything, there is always someone happy to assist."
