Matt Linick

Matt has been hooked on the camp experience since he was nine years old and attended his first sleepaway camp in the Berkshires. Matt attended the University of Michigan and graduated from the School of Kinesiology with a degree in Sports Management. While Matt’s career has included investment management, business consulting, and event production, it’s his passion for camping that has motivated him to build Camp Arrow Wood and to inspire the next generation of campers. During his time as a former high school and college basketball coach, Matt worked with many athletes from six-year-olds to professionals. Matt’s wife, Stacy, and daughter, Megan, are both lifelong campers themselves.
