Staff Spotlight - Ari Weil

My name is Ari Weil and I'm originally from Denver, Colorado. Currently, I am a second-year international relations major at Pomona College. At school, I compete in Model United Nations and manage the campus bike repair shop. At camp, you can find me teaching biking, riflery, and ultimate frisbee. This will be my 11th summer at North Star, and I'm so excited to get back to camp!
