Hi, I'm Lawton!

A former GRP camper, Lawton Jeffords is returning for his sixth summer on staff. He grew up in Spartanburg, SC, attended the Forman School in Litchfield, CT, and graduated from nearby Brevard College, as a Wilderness Leadership & Experiential Education major. Lawton has been an OBX and BRX Expedition Leader, and loves to hunt, fish, run, climb, snowboard, hike, camp, kayak, and do anything else outdoors. He has been on several research trips to the Costa Rica Rainforest to study the silk of Golden Orb Weaver spiders, and most recently has been teaching at Nature’s Classroom in Mentone, AL.
