Staff Spotlight - Alex Foster

Alex Foster returns to camp after a few year absences. A former camper, we're excited to have him join the staff for the first time. Alex is currently a senior at Highland Park High School, where he’s involved in congressional debate, the DECA business club and Scholastic Bowl. He interned for a congressional campaign and also holds a student representative position on the Highland Park City Council.

Alex has been on some pretty cool trips recently. He actually went to Nepal and Bhutan over winter break. He won't be going that far for college. In the fall, Alex will be a freshman at the University of Chicago. At camp he'll be instructing wakeboarding and arts & crafts. This will be Alex's seventh summer at North Star.
