Staff Spotlight - Jacob Lehr

While many of our college age staff have finished up school and have even had a few weeks to rest up, Jacob Lehr is still hard at work. Currently studying abroad in New Zealand and he's got finals up through the coming week. He'll fly directly from New Zealand at camp, just to be here in time for the start of our pre-camp orientation. Jacob's commitment is a great example to the entire NSC community!

Jacob is from from Omaha, Nebraska. When not studying in New Zealand, he's a student at the University of Southern California. He'll be entering his senior year there in the fall and he's studying economics and political philosophy. This will be summer #11 for at camp Jacob. He is one of our village directors and will instruct golf, windsurfing and some tennis.
