Our Staff


YMCA staff are committed to serving you and your family. That's why we strive to both model and exemplify the Y's core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. For our camp counselors, helping young people grow and feel a sense of belonging is the top priority.

Building things, playing sports and finding adventure are three things our new Camp Hyde Summer Camp Director LOVES to do. Aaron has been an educator for 20 years. He’s been a history teacher, coach and principal. His passion for helping kids reach their fullest potential has also seen him work as a youth pastor, camp counselor and even an after school staff member for the Y. He can’t wait to help your kids have an awesome summer, and we can’t wait to find out what camp nickname you give him.

He has been a history teacher for 26 years and the past 19 years has coached football at Conway Springs High School. Outside of camp, Scrappy enjoys hunting, reading, and playing golf.

My name is Brett “Wheels” Womack, and this is my 12th summer at Camp Hyde. I work for Haysville schools during the school year, and have been employed through the district for 9 years. During the previous 10 years at Camp Hyde, I have worked with a variety of different groups such as Pathfinders, Sports Camp, Tower Coordinator, and Teens. I'm looking forward to watching campers make many lasting memories, while creating a fun and exciting atmosphere for them! My favorite thing about camp is having kids step out of their norm and try new things every day. Outside of camp I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching soccer, and playing golf.
