Fred Johnson is returning to Kids College for his 5th summer and is super excited to be back!  He'll be the instructor for Multimedia Design, Lego Robotics, and Lego Stop Motion Animation.  When not having fun at camp or hanging out with the geese at PSU's beautiful lake, he is a school counselor around the corner at Abington Junior High School.  For fun, he loves spending time at the playground with his children, playing sports, and watching Penn State Football.  This summer, he hopes his campers will help him decide whether or not to buy a Saquon Barkley jersey!
