Unit Head

Kristin Newman

Hi! I’m Kristin! I am from Hammond, Louisiana (Lion Up!) and I am Chalutzim Unit Head for Summer 2022! This is my second year at camp and I am so excited to be here for another summer of fun! My favorite camp activities are attending Unit Talent Shows and making jewelry in the Art Room! In my free time at camp, you can find me hanging out by the lake or sneaking into the Dining Hall for yet another cup of coffee.

From January until the end of May I have been living in Israel on a gap semester program taking classes, working at an internship, and meeting people from all over the world. I will be a returning counselor for my second summer at Jacobs Camp. I have attended Jacobs as a camper since I was 8 years old and loved it so much I have been coming back every year since. I am so excited for another amazing summer at camp and can’t wait to be back at Jacobs!

Zack Morrison

Hi! My name is Zack, and I’m from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This year will be my 10th summer at camp, and my second year on staff. Jacobs Camp is my home, but during the year I study music production at Full Sail University in Orlando. I’m currently a full time student, but for the past year I have been doing weekly volunteer work with WWE’s developmental program NXT in association with Full Sail. When I’m not making music, I spend my time exploring the city, fishing off the gulf coast, gaming, and enjoying a fine meal at the world’s largest McDonald’s (Epic McD’s.) I couldn’t possibly be more excited for camp this summer, and look forward to meeting my campers!
