Kelly Preboski Executive Director |

With a sense of God's great purpose for Luther Heights and its ministry, the LHBC Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Kelly Preboski will be the camp's new executive director effective September 16, 2018.

Kelly has served for nearly four years as Camp Director for Pine Lake Camp, one of three camps with Crossways Camping Ministry, a Lutheran Outdoor Ministry site in Wisconsin. Prior to this, Kelly has been an education coordinator and teacher for two ELCA congregations, a classroom teacher at a parochial school, and as a young adult she served nine years in outdoor ministry, beginning as a summer counselor and concluding as a year-round program director. She has a Youth and Family Ministry Certification from Wartburg Theological Seminary.


Bob Kuehner Interim Executive Director |

As a way of introduction, I have had 30 years of being an executive director of camps in Colorado and Florida, and the director of major and planned gifts for Wapogasset Bible Camp Ministries and Lutheran Family Services of The Rocky Mountains for 11 years. I love have conversations with folks to find ways to invest in important ministry!! I have been married for 47 years to a very supportive wife who is a licensed psychologist where we live in Broomfield, Co. I have two adult daughters, one in Virginia on the William & Mary College operations staff (with my 11 year old grandson) and a daughter in Seattle who is a professional choreographer, modern dance performer. To have the privilege of leadership after significant years’ service from Pr Eric and his wife Carol, in an extraordinary opportunity as Interim Director is gratifying. I look forward to working with the board of directors to hear about your history, your strengths and weaknesses and move forward to a growing future of ministry for people of all ages.


Jon Davidson Program Director |

Jon grew up in Southern Idaho and Utah. He was a camper at LHBC from 1st grade to 12th, and worked on summer staff from 2010-2014. Jon went to California Lutheran University where he received a B.A. in Sociology and Psychology. Jon has been the full time Program Director since 2015. During the summer camp season you can find Jon on the trails throughout camp. In the winter season Jon lives in Boise and spends time anywhere a good cup of coffee can be brewed or great music heard. His favorite hobbies are fishing, hiking, driving in the mountains, Ultimate Frisbee. And, since he can't have his own, LOVES petting and playing with any dog he gets a chance to!


Brooke Freiheit Office Administrator |

Brooke joins the staff at Luther Heights as the Office Administrator in the Boise office. A native of Minnesota, she grew up camping, canoeing, and hiking. She graduated from Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with a B.A. in Exercise Science and Management in 2014. Her and her husband, Clint, a software developer, honeymooned with a camping trip in Alaska and decided they needed to be surrounded by mountains. In January 2017, they moved from St. Paul, MN to Boise, ID. Her hobbies include modern handlettering and graphic design for Bravo Foxtrot Designs, CrossFit, and camping. She can usually be found with a glass of iced coffee and playing fetch with her dog, Landy. (PS: Her last name means “freedom” in German. It’s pronounced fry-height.)
