Meet The Director

Emma Jachowicz, Day Camp Director

Hi! My name is Emma and I am so happy to be back at Wellpoint for another summer. I strive to make our camp a fun, safe, and inviting place for everyone. Campers will get to spend time outside, make new friends, learn new things, and most importantly have fun!

I was born and raised in Milwaukee spending time swimming and playing basketball at the local Y. This will be my sixth year working with the YMCA and my second year as the director here at Wellpoint. Some of my favorite things to do are walking my dog, workout, and going to brunch with my friends. I look forward to having an amazing summer with you and your family!

STEAM Camp (Ages 7-12)

Hands-on experiences like building structures and machines and an introduction to 3D printing will certainly inspire our campers.
