Staff Spotlight: Fletcher Hillier

Fletcher Hillier will be joining us for his first summer at North Star. Hailing from Whangarei in New Zealand, he's actually got family from all over the globe. His parents have relocated to England and his brother is now living in Chile. He gets to travel quite a bit to see them and following the summer, he'll meet up with family in Machu Picchu. Fletcher grew up in Whangarei and then went to Victoria University in Wellington, NZ. He'll take a break from his job as a police officer to come to camp this summer.

Fletcher is an avid outdoorsman. He's been climbing since he was ten years old and has worked as a climbing instructor in the past. He also enjoys rappelling, hiking and caving. We're glad to have Fletcher join us as a cabin counselor and climbing instructor.
