I’m Mason (Mo) Gilbert and I’m from Memphis, TN. I’m 18 years old and am attending Purdue for a genetics major starting this fall. During the year, I’ve played soccer for my high school for two years, and focused on academics for the other two years. I spend a lot of my time talking to friends or playing video games. I’ve been at camp for 10 years now and I hope to play the role of the counselor that all the campers like. I haven’t done any direct volunteer work, but rather I’ve been president of MeFTY for two years now. Through MeFTY, we’ve been able to help other communities as well as our own.

Hi, y’all! My name is Noah Saperstein and this will be my 8th summer at Jacobs Camp but only my first as a counselor. While I am going to college at Bowdoin in Brunswick, Maine, I have lived all over the world. In fact, I have spent about half my life overseas. Because I have never lived anywhere for very long, Jacobs Camp has become a home to me in so many ways and I can’t wait to help other campers feel that same connection. My hobbies include playing soccer and tennis, solving Rubik’s cubes, and learning yo-yo tricks. I love trying new foods and learning how to play card/board games. I have volunteered as a tutor in the past through my school and as a counselor at a week-long camp before. I can’t wait to meet everyone this summer and make it the best one ever!
