Hi Everybody! My name is Rob Zintl, and I was a camper at Kieve for 9 years, but this will be my first as a counselor! Right now I'm taking a gap year, but next fall I will be attending Santa Clara University where I plan to major in Environmental Studies. I love everything about Kieve, but my favorite thing by far is Frolf. When I'm not frolfing however, I like playing sports and spending time at the waterfront. Can't wait to meet you all!
