Captain Mickey, as he is known at Northern Frontier, started as a camper at Mountain Lakes, in CT, and on staff at camp in Freehold, NY. In 1971, he and his wife Joanne returned to visit NF and had a long talk with then-Director Bruce Baker, who asked Mickey to consider being the Battalion Program Director. Joanne and Mickey were both excited and felt called to come back. Mickey has served at Northern Frontier since 1972 as Battalion Program Director, father/son trip leader, Tree Climber leader, Father/Son Camp Coordinator, Business Manager, and Chief “Stud Muffin” (until Chris Studley took over). Married to Joanne with one son, Marc, and 6 grandkids.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.
