Staff Spotlight - Patricio Gomez

Patricio Gomez joins the NSC staff for his first summer. A native of Colima, Mexico, he's studying engineering at the Monterrey Institute of Technology. He spent time when he was in 7th grade studying in Michigan, so the Midwest won't be an unknown for him.

Patricio has always enjoyed the outdoors. He's been involved with watersports since he was a kid, focusing on waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking and even scuba diving. He also went to camps himself as a kid, where he was able to ski, go horseback riding, and do other great outdoor activities. We're excited to have Patricio at camp as a cabin counselor and waterski/wakeboard instructor.
