North Star Camp for Boys

Staff Spotlight - Adam Yaker

I’m Adam Yaker and I will be returning to North Star for my fifth summer as a CIT. I live in Huntington Woods, Michigan, a tiny suburb outside of Detroit and attend Berkley High School where I am wrapping up my sophomore year.

My home life outside of camp mainly consists in my participation and love for sports. This past year I played varsity tennis, junior varsity basketball and ran track for my school but I enjoy playing all types of sports with my friends. I write for my school newspaper and will be the new opinion section editor next year. Camp is just around the corner and I can’t wait to spend another summer at North Star.

More about Adam

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what are three things you'd bring?

If you could have lunch with any two people, dead or alive, who would they be?

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and what would you do there?

What's your go-to pie at the Norske Nook?

Best holiday gift that you've ever gotten?
- My first phone in sixth grade because I was told I wasn’t getting one until after seventh grade.

How has camp impacted you?
- Camp is a place where I have made relationships with others from all across the country and despite not living near many of my closest camp friends, I know the friendships will last forever. Camp is special to me because it is a place where you don’t have to worry about what others think, you just can be yourself. Camp has allowed me to experience things I would never have been capable of experiencing otherwise.
