Staff Spotlight - Micah Jona

I’m Micah Jona and I can’t wait to get back to North Star this summer. I’m from Wilmette, IL where I am finishing up my junior year of high school at New Trier. At school I am on the tennis team and play other intramural sports. This will be my 9th year at camp and 2nd as a staff member. At camp I will be found all over the place teaching water skiing, disc golf, tennis, and any land sport. Can’t wait for another great summer!
