John comes to us with a strong background in wilderness travel, risk management, property management, food service and outdoor education.  Some of you may remember John from his previous time with Camp. He participated in family weekends as a child, was a camper from ’83-’90 and worked as a counselor, outpost leader and for property between 1991-1998.  John also has spent significant time working with NOLS as a senior field instructor from 1999-2016.  Most recently John has been working for a vendor assembling, testing, launching and recovering stratospheric balloons that provide network coverage to places without power or cell towers.
