Brent Weisenstein
Program Manager

Brent is a jack of all trades.  He first joined the Nuhop team in 2003 and was a valued member of our summer and Outdoor Education programs.  He credits Nuhop with helping him develop his love of nature and the realization that you can turn something you are passionate about into a career.  After 10 years at Nuhop, he set out to travel the world and found himself in a number of adventurous places where he tried out a few careers, including becoming an arborist!  Eventually, he became immersed in the world of climbing, became a national-level climbing coach, and ran his own climbing business.  He realized that many of the things he was teaching were built on the foundation of knowledge he gained while at Nuhop. 

In 2020 when the pandemic hit, he found he needed to pivot, and that pivot found him right back at Nuhop for our 2021 Outdoor Education season.  He brought with him all the things he learned during his travels and is so excited to share them!

When not out climbing or playing disc golf with friends, Brent can be found hanging out with his dog Rock C and his cat Leroy.
