Staff Spotlight - Nikko Van Crey

Nikko Van Crey returns to North Star for his second year on staff. A former camper and CIT, Nikko took the last two summers off. He grew up just outside of Austin, TX. There he was very interested in robotics and engineering. He just finished up his freshman year at the University of Michigan, where he's studying mechanical engineering.

Nikko has a pretty wide variety of interests. During high school he spent a few years on the power lifting team. Archery was one of his favorite activities as a camper and he continued to shoot outside of camp. This summer Nikko will be instructing archery and fitness training.
