Eric has been an active member of the Red Arrow Camp family for over two decades: first as a camp counselor in 1997, then as RAC Advisory Board president, and now as RAC camp director. Eric earned his B.A in Public Relations from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in 2001 and his M.S. in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2004. Prior to joining RAC as Camp Director, he worked at Whitewater for 17 years in various roles related to residence life, counseling, advising, leadership development, and teaching.
When he’s not manning the RAC helm, you can find Eric coaching youth Nordic skiing, and participating in sports himself. He enjoys participating and competing in cycling, Nordic Skiing, paddle boarding, and the occasional mountain climbing or backpacking experience. In the camp off-season, he lives in Delafield with his son (and Red Arrow camper) Gus.
McKenzie Beeby has been a part of Red Arrow for his entire life. Since his first summer in 2003, he has been in many roles at camp, accumulating over two decades of experience. Throughout the years, he took on different roles such as cookie, stable boy, counselor, and eventually joined the senior staff.
Before McKenzie became the Associate Director he worked in the marketing industry doing work for companies like the American Red Cross, Garden Of Life, Hunter Douglas, Gensler Architects, and Adobe. McKenzie has had a career in content with a specific skillset in design and video.
Now, he serves as our Associate Director at camp, helping Eric plan and execute each summer. During the winter, he and his wife Kara, our camp nurse, reside in Vail, Colorado, where they ski, hike, mountain bike, and camp. He also invests in start-ups that specialize in health and wellness. Together with his wife, they eagerly await for the ice to thaw off Trout Lake so they can return to Red Arrow each spring.
