Staff Spotlight - Max Pastan

Hi everyone! My name is Max Pastan but some people call me Boston at camp. I am from Marblehead Massachusetts which is a suburb near Boston. I am a Junior at Proctor Academy which is a boarding school in Andover New Hampshire. 

I participate in the FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) chapter I started this year at my school. I also play soccer, cross country ski, and row crew. This will be my 8th summer at camp and my 2nd year on staff. I am so excited to see all the returning campers and meet all the new ones!
