Meet Camp Counselor Tyler!

Tyler Hicks 2Tyler started working at Camp in April 2017. He is an animal person so he knew Camp would be a great fit!

Tyler’s favorite part of his job is loving on the Campers! Whether it be a dog excited to see him in the mornings or a pup ready for an afternoon snuggle session in the play yards, Tyler always greets them with open arms! Being around so many loving Campers each day never fails to put a smile on his face.

At home, Tyler has four cats and one dog! Kassidy is a four-year-old orange Tabby who is timid but super sweet. Miranda is a ten-year-old Calico who enjoys sunbathing and finding new places to nap. Princess Peanutbutter is a three-year-old orange Tabby who is extremely playful and enjoys running around with her toys, chasing lasers, and looking out the window. Winston is a one-year-old gray Tabby/Bengal mix who is always exploring places he shouldn’t, such as the top of the pantry or the window terrace. Toby is a very sweet thirteen-year-old German Shepard mix. Toby enjoys light play, going on long walks, and taking naps in the presence of the people he loves!

Outside of work, you can find Tyler painting, drawing, making comics or writing stories. He is an artist who enjoys creating murals. He also sews and knits. You may have seen a piece of his work in the Detroit Free Press for a costume of his that they featured! When he is not bringing his creative ideas to life, Tyler likes reading and exploring walking trails.
