Tawongan Since: 2001
“Everything I learned in life, I learned at Camp,” Well, that’s how Ben Gershen feels anyway. As a 13-year Tawonga veteran, Ben has held a number of jobs at Camp including Cornerstone Counselor, Dance Programmer and Program Director. As a Bay Area native who spent his summers in Yosemite and winters in Lake Tahoe, Ben finds himself facing new adventures in the Pacific Northwest. As the recent founder of Higher Ground Entertainment in Portland, OR, Ben is drawing upon his unique background to foster creative communities by providing entertainment for private & corporate events.
