Meet our 2019 Staff – Cole Gibson

Assistant Director

Cole Gibson spent five summers as a camper at Pine Island and went on to teach axemanship, fire building, first aid, emergency shelter construction, leave-no-trace techniques and much more as our head woodcraft instructor. For the past two years Cole has held the highly-coveted position of expedition camp leader (last year he shared this responsibility with Satchel Toole). We are thrilled to have him back this year in his new capacity as Assistant Director. Cole will graduate in May with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Psychology from Colby-Sawyer College. He is a Wilderness First Responder. This will be his 11th summer at Pine Island. His father, cousins, and brother have all attended camp. Cole’s father, Tad Gibson, returns every year to umpire the War Game.
