North Star Camp for Boys

Staff Spotlight - Forest Lemon

Forest Lemon returns to North Star for his second summer. He's from a small town in East Texas called  Nacogdoches. He and his family grew up off the grid, without electricity, television and other amenities. He actually built his house at the age of nine (with the help of his dad).

He's just finished his sophomore year at the University of Arkansas where he's majoring in mechanical engineering. In his spare time he likes to rock climbing and is an avid fisherman. The outdoors is a passion of his and he's done quite a bit of trip leading, working in Atikokan, Ontario leading trips two summers ago for Northern Tier in Quetico. We're lucky to have Forest back as a wilderness trip leader.
