Meet The Director

Erin Diestler, Day Camp Director
Hello! My name is Erin Diestler and I will be the Camp Director at Rite-Hite this summer. I started working at the YMCA in 2016 and have filled various roles from a Camp Counselor to Camp Director.

I fell in love with working in childcare and the Y from the moment I stepped on the big fields at Rite-Hite. I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing sports, taking field trips, and spending as much one-on-one time with campers as I can.

Fun Facts:

  • I lived in The Bahamas for 15 months.
  • I worked for the Milwaukee Bucks for 5 years and have a Masters' Degree in Sport Management.
  • I love dogs! I rescued a puppy from the island I lived on in The Bahamas and brought him back with me to live in the snow instead of the sand.
  • When I'm not working, you'll find me spending time with friends and family, watching any Wisconsin sports team, and probably enjoying some cheese curds or chips and guac.

Program: Erin Diestler, Director, ediestler@ymcamke.org or 414-357-1950.

STEAM Camp Add-On (Ages 7-12)

STEAM Camp (Ages 7-12)
At our “Science Café”, campers ages 7-12 will gain an appreciation of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math by experiencing how they're intertwined. Activities are designed to promote critical thinking skills and teamwork. Hands-on experiences like building structures and machines and an introduction to 3D printing will certainly inspire our campers.

DATES: July 31 - August 4, 2023
HOURS: STEAM Add-on conveniently added during Traditional Day Camp
PRICE: $75 add-on fee
