North Star Camp for Boys

Thursday, April 5, 2012

Staff Spotlight: Mitch McGregor

We're very excited to have Mitch McGregor back at camp for his second summer. A native of central Illinois, Mitch received his undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University. At the moment he is finishing up his masters degree in architecture from the University of North Carolina - Charlotte. He decided that he'd return for another summer while he looks for an architecture job.

At camp Mitch instructs model rocketry and digital photography. We know that he is looking forward to his fan club that includes a few campers who enjoy making scrap rockets and making good use of the hot glue gun. Mitch always has a smile on his face regardless of the situation and his fun, positive attitude will be a great addition to camp this summer!
