North Star Camp for Boys

Staff Spotlight - Philip Rasansky

What’s up everyone, my name is Philip Rasansky, and I’ll be returning to North Star for summer number eleven! I’m a native of Dallas, TX, but I just finished my freshman year at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, where I’ll (maybe?) be studying Math and Spanish. 

At camp, you can find me up on the basketball court, athletic fields, or down at the waterski docks. Can’t wait to make this North Star’s best summer yet!

How has camp impacted you?
-I think it’s hard to quantify the impact North Star has had on my personality. My summers in the Northwoods of Wisconsin have become such a constant in my life that I don’t think there’s a part of me the North Star hasn’t touched, altered, or stamped. The values I have learned here—what it means to be a good friend, a good leader, and a good sport, among many—are ones that I continue to look for in myself and those with whom I surround myself.
