Staff Spotlight: Noah Larson

Noah Larson comes to North Star for summer #1 from Lakeville, MN, just south of the Twin Cities. He's currently a student at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, where he's studying electrical engineering. He's currently taking 19 credit hours of class, so we're sure that he'll enjoy the pace of camp quite a bit. He headed to school in the Black Hills of SD, in part, because of his love of the outdoors and the terrain there is perfect for mountain biking.

Noah has quite a bit of camp experience himself. As a child, he went to family camps in MN. He then worked at a camp for intercity youth. He's also coached basketball camps and last summer worked as a personal care assistant for a disabled ten year old at a camp. Noah brings quite a bit of skills with him to camp and can do many outdoor activities. He'll focus on climbing, riflery and model rocketry.
